The Vibrant Artists Community of Midleton and Surrounds come together in mid-May to present their work, experiment, stretch imaginations and raise the spirits of the local community.
Feel the town buzz the minute you step foot on the street. Expect the unexpected, and bring your friends and family along to take part in the many activities!
Take art trails through Midleton, listen to music in the market, and book reading in the bookstore, try your hand at drawing, sculpture, visit the festival club to brush shoulders with local creators, discover hidden gems and unknown corners of the town, make a mask, dance and sip cocktails at the Jameson & Jazz Masked Ball.
Exciting for children, the festival enriches their lives and gives them playful ways to make art, be inspired, and make new friends. Don’t miss the incredible Junkyard Playground, Busking Competition, and even Conducting the Orchestra. Film in the Courthouse gives children a place to showcase their films and animations and workshops leading up to the festival lead to their artworks being exhibited.
For artists, the festival gives a platform to display art in the Shop Front Gallery along the whole Main Street and in other surprising places around the town!
And if you want your spirits lifted, join the huge Kindred Spirits Drum Circle in Bailick Park.
