AES Bord na Móna is proud to celebrate our ninth year at the Punchestown Festival sponsoring Family Day on Saturday, May 4th, 2019.  The day is hugely popular with families as there is something suitable for all ages. The centrepiece of the day’s race schedule is our sponsored Grade-1 AES Champion Four-Year-Old Hurdle.

As part of the festival, Family Day offers a chance for families to come to the races together, where there will be several activities on offer for all the family.  Children under the age of 14 have free admission. Let your young ones burn off some energy and enjoy bouncy castles, pony rides, and face painting. There will be arts and crafts in the AES Fun Zone – glitter, glue, and glamour in a creative workshop for kids.

On arrival at Punchestown families will be greeted by live street theatre with jugglers, stilt walkers and balloon artists mingling through the crowd. Stage schools from the locality will also be providing live entertainment on the day. A Festival Shopping Village will also host over 30 exhibitors showcasing Irish brands and visitors from the UK with millenary, fashion, art and sculpture, homewares and lifestyle products.

As part of this special day out, AES would like to offer our customers FREE Reserved Enclosure tickets. This includes access to the reserved enclosure – the Hunt Stand and Bollinger Bar, the famous Sky Bar and festival bar. Live music and dining options, along with brilliant trackside viewing from new terraces.
