The inaugural Thurles Harvest Festival which is taking place on Sunday 20th May at Thurles Racecourse is expected to attract a massive crowd due to the unique variety of family events taking place on the day.
The event which is being run to raise funds for both The Thurles Halloween Arts Festival and The Friends of the Community Hospital of the Assumption has something for everyone and will be a huge plus for the town.
The Festival organisers have been planning this event since last February and have attracted a large variety of entertainment including the coup of hosting the Munster Tug of War Championship. This event will have teams from every county in Munster including 3 teams from Tipperary. This is the first time that Thurles has hosted this prestigious event which coincides with the town’s status as European Town of Sport.
