Ballina Fringe Festival is 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 returns from 8-1th October 2022, in association with the Ice House, and our festival theme this year is ‘The Possibilities’.

Join us as we dip and weave our way though exceptional art, musical entertainment, tales well told and lyrical words that dance in a true feast for the senses.

Pay it Forward Tickets

In line with our values of community and inclusivity, Ballina Fringe Festival in partnership with Ballina Family Resource Centre will distribute tickets to members of our community that might not otherwise be able to attend.
