MAD HATTERS DAY - SUNDAY 2ND OF AUGUST

Last day of the Galway Races Summer Festival 2020

The final day of the Summer Festival 2020 epitomises that old adage about saving the best for last! For 2020 our Family Days will take place on Saturday and Sunday of the Summer Festival Meeting. Fun and colour is the theme for these spectacular days with children admitted free of charge. There is lots of entertainment for the young racegoer including bouncy castles, a children’s disco, slides, face painting and crazy characters throughout the enclosure.

The first race goes off at 2.15pm on a card supported by sponsors including At The Races, Adare Manor, JPK Fencing, Foran Equine, SCL Sales, Kenny Galway and Irish Stallion Farms. Weekend Special Hospitality Packages in the Killanin Stand start from just €70pp.
