The Hollywood Fair Committee is busy making final preparations for the Annual Fair which takes place from Wednesday 16th to Sun 20th August. The 2017 Hollywood Fair promises to be hugely entertaining with something of interest for everyone. The pre-1950s rural heritage theme of the Fair has proved a real hit with people. All in attendance embrace the spirit of the occasion and enjoy the spectacle of seeing each other dressed in pre-1950s attire! Whether it's nostalgia for the past or something else, both the farming community and townspeople alike have been flocking to Hollywood in the last 6 years to be part of the celebration.

Dressed in pre-1950s attire the large attendance usually make their way by pony and trap, vintage vehicles, bikes and shank’s mare.

And of course there will be the usual exhibitions of traditional crafts such as blacksmithing, stonecutting, threshing, thatching, wood-turning and butter making. The indoor handicrafts being displayed included spinning, knitting and sewing. Among the items on display are vintage cars and farm machinery. Another major attraction is the Sheep Show: competition for the various categories attracts intense local interest. Entrance fee for a wonderful family day-out is just three euro for adults with children under-12 free.
