Geopark Events

Our 2020 programme of events for the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark is ready for your enjoyment!

It is intended to embrace the ethos of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in hosting events within the Geopark area which reflect the rich natural and cultural heritage of the border regions of counties Fermanagh and Cavan.
