Womens's Museum Activities

The Women's Museum, located just inside the DART gate behind the Clonmel Horse Arena is not hard to find but is often overlooked by festival goers. The museum that was renovated in the late 90's is now home to the NTIF Culinary area. A stage featuring whiskey and mead tasting on Friday night; top Dallas chefs preparing great dishes that up to 100 lucky festival goers can get to sample;over a dozen local vendors serving samples of chocolate, honey, salsa and other sauces; plus Durty Nelly's, a popular premium beer, cider and mead bar as well as the Shanachie stage with many local and national performers all weekend. Check out the culinary area, chefs and musical performers.

Electric Scooter Rental

We recognize that the festival covers a very large area and that some you you may be put off by having to walk around all day. That is why we have partnered with ABC Scooters so they can meet you at the gate and get you on your way in your very own electric scooter. Scooters can be reserved in advance either online at www.abcscooter.net or by calling Gayla at 903-567-0637.

ABC Scooters will be located just inside the Gurly gate on Washington Street next to the large Shannon stage tent.
