The 58th annual Rosscarbery Family Festival will take place this August. During the festival there will be activities to entertain all the family. All of the old favourites continue to feature with pig racing, mouse racing, pavement art, dog show, Beat on the Street, children's art and craft and much more!

The ever popular sandcastle and sand sculpture competition takes place at the Warren Beach. Other highlights are the pub singing competition and the Monster Rag Parade. There will be a number of guided walks during the week which is a lovely way to get the local stories and snippets of history of the area. 2013 dates to be confirmed.
