Of course in light of the current Covid-19 situation, we were sad to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Midleton Arts Festival. We are thrilled to announce we will hold the 2021 festival in July. We hope to see you there and we will keep you updated on our Facebook page. Please visit us there and feel free to share any art works or ideas with us!
Our festival is a celebration of our community and its relationship with art. With so many talented artists in the area and wonderful art teachers in the schools, creativity is bubbling in East Cork throughout the year. MAF creates an opportunity to showcase, share and express this ongoing creativity during the mid May arts festival.
We are aiming to do no poster printing, use an app for information, extend the Saturday market to celebrate and investigate the local food artisans, growers and sustainable possibilities for Midleton.
We want people to be involved. We would love all artists and creatives to spend time together during the festival. We hope to create a space for artists to create and bounce ideas around, get inspired, meet new friends. The organisers are volunteers, so there is very little time and funding for us to organise every event but if you have something you can offer, and it suits to present it during July 16th – 18th. We will advertise and support you and guide you to the best place to set up/perform/exhibit/pop up.
A group of us met as part of One World Week and here is the lovely video shot by Kara Sweeney to get you started with ideas or be enticed to join one of our idea teams.
What a glorious festival we had in May 2019! Captured so beautifully by East Cork filmmaker Kara Sweeney of Twenty4Films.
The Vibrant Artists Community of Midleton and Surrounds come together in mid-May (delayed until July) 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.
