Midleton Arts Festival
A mid-May celebration of the arts. Bringing art to the community.
The Midleton Arts Festival is a vibrant and welcoming weekend which aims to promote, express and celebrate creativity.
“Tread Lightly” is our theme for 2019. Midleton is a town full of welcoming artists and visionaries and artists and exhibitions will focus attention on the environment through Land Art, with intimate creations to huge recycled-material-filled willow fish, a Fire show ‘Firestorm’ by Inferno late on Saturday night will thrill you, the huge drumming circle in the market place will raise your spirits, pop up events and improvised moments will excite and inspire.
This festival is a place for you to feel free and inspired and creative.
The workshops and events offer a chance to join in with the art that happens locally throughout the year. There are opportunities to try new art forms and be involved with others in the community. Things to do and see that will inspire and enrich.
The Main Street comes alive with art filled shop fronts, impromptu performances, busking, open studios and film installations. The festival is a highly enjoyable experience whether you are participating actively or just chilling out listening, watching, exploring.
The festival features all facets of the arts for all ages including film, a creative playground, fine art, sculpture, craft, music, dance, literature, poetry and drama. Midleton Arts Festival aims to promote and present art as a catalyst for change and growth and as a wonderful way to explore, share, reflect and express yourself.
