Established in 1921 and from small beginnings it has developed into the flourishing festival it is today.
A Music week takes place in the first week of March each year followed by a Verse Speaking and Drama week. Well over a thousand young people from across the community participate annually, performing as individuals, groups and in the increasingly popular section for choirs. An experienced team of local volunteers is responsible for planning and organising the Festival which has become an important annual event in the Dungannon area.
