The town has become famous for hosting Ireland's oldest and most unusual annual festival ~ Puck Fair. The king of Puck Fair, a chosen mountain goat is borne in triumph and enthroned for two days. Why is a goat the king of the fair? Local stories tell that a stampeding herd of mountain goats warned the locals of the invasion by the Cromwellian forces! The festival has been welcoming visitors from around the world to join in the festivities for many a year. The festival is held each year from the 10-12 of August. The three days are named The Gathering Day (a horse fair), The Fair Day (a cattle fair) and The Scattering Day.
