The Blue Jean Country Queen Festival has been running in Athboy for 25 years. Each year Queens gather from all over Ireland and even further afield to celebrate what has become a much loved tradition here in County Meath.
The festival features: free children's entertainment with bouncy castles, bungee runs, clowns, face painting, playhouses, giant games, three nights of live music, an attempt to break a World Record, a craft fair, a modelling competition, fancy dress football, trips to local tourist attractions like Trim Castle, treasure hunts, karaoke, pub crawls, Irish dancing and trad music displays.
There are endless ways for visitors and supporters to join in the fun. The Gathering 2013 is a chance for Queens from the past, local people living abroad, and the Macra na Feirme community to come back to the home of our great festival.
