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! Magical May events for all ages; children’s busking competition, make art on the street, great exhibitions, music, meditative dance, drumming circle, poetry, film, bohemian discussions, outstanding theatre. There really is something for everyone in Midleton’s Arts Festival.
“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 around the Kindred Spirits Feather Sculpture 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.
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 Land Artist Gerry Barry will be creating a special piece in Midleton at the Baby’s Walk.
