Ballina Fringe Festival -8th – 18th October 2020

Sprung from one of Ireland’s best known and longest established summer festivals, Ballina Salmon Festival, Ballina Fringe Festival is another fish entirely – an artistic exploration of life lived on the edge of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way served up in a festival of words, art and music.

The festival will return – with an element of social distancing – from 8th – 118th October 2020, in association with the Ice House Hotel & Spa.

Join us as we dip and weave our way though exceptional art, musical entertainment, historical discoveries, tales well told and lyrical words that dance through poetry.  

Programme coming soon!
