Every year, world famous music artists play great concerts in Dundalk Heritage Park, at the Dundalk Heritage Fair, during the Fourth of July Independence Day Celebration weekend. There's also lots of enjoyable music played by other - foot-tappin'-good-get-up-and-dance - music artists, there are plenty of fun and interesting activities for children and adults to get into, the fair's crafts area is well stocked and very nicely presented, there are local history booths - including school alumni associations, and the food is tummy terrific.

Children under 12 get into the Heritage Fair for free, adults pay $5.00.
On Friday, July 2nd, The Mahoney Brothers Long Live The Beatles show will begin at 7:30pm on the main stage.
