It’s time for all the Teddies to pack up a picnic and bring their children to Sligo Folk Park for the Teddy Bear Picnic. Riverstown will be the Teddy capital of the northwest on Thursday 18th July as mini picnickers and their furry friends have Teddy-themed crafts, fun and games of all sorts. Participants can bring their own picnics and the event runs from 11am-12:30pm and 2pm-3:30pm. 

Activities are spread around the 6-acre site, some indoors and some outside.   The giant Teddy Bear greets everyone on arrival and just loves getting into selfies too. From that moment on, it’s a day filled with action and activity, all Teddy-themed of course.  There will be arts and crafts, story telling as well as face painting and lots of games. You can also learn about the history of the Teddy Bear.  If your favourite Teddy is feeling under the weather, don’t despair – the Teddy Bears Hospital will be open. Soon he or she  will be well enough to join in the Treasure Hunt where everyone follows the fun clues to claim their goodie bag.  The Fairy Village will also be open to welcome little visitors (and Teddies too of course).

Booking for the Sligo Folk Park Teddy Bear Picnic is required, See Book Tickets above.   Admission to the event is €10 per child/ Adults €5. Participants bring their own picnics and the onsite  Millstone Café will also be open for delicious treats and refreshments. Don’t forget to bring Teddy!
