The Carrabane Arts Festival started in 2015 and has gone from strength to strength over the last few years. It is run on a voluntary non-profit basis by the community development company. Our goal is to celebrate arts in the community and to host inspiring events and activities that can be enjoyed by young and old.
LOCAL, NATIONAL, INTERNATIONAL
The festival combines nationally recognized and local and upcoming talent in a series of events that brings people together over the June bank holiday weekend. It also features guest appearances from international acts each year and strives to bring innovative and novel performances to the community in various indoor and outdoor venues.
The festival is a previous winner of the Galway County Community award for Arts and Culture and is supported by Galway County Council, The Arts Council and local sponsors and volunteers.
