Ballina Fringe Festival returns
9-18 October 2020

We’ve been busy building an exciting programme of outdoors, online and intimate indoor gigs, exhibitions, street art, performances, talks and interviews.

Sign up and be first to get the latest updates.

Ballina Fringe Festival returns from 9th – 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 – to the outdoors, online and in intimate settings – from 9th – 18th 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! 

Pure Ballina – Ballina Fringe Festival’s community street art project

Pure Ballina also returns to bring our community and world-leading street artists to the streets of Ballina – in collaboration with Foroige’s Neighbourhood Youth Project and Beelieve in Ballina, partnering with Ballina’s Men’s Shed and funded by Creative Ireland, Dulux and Topline Archers Ballina.

Ballina Fringe Festival is developed in partnership with Ballina Arts Centre and Mayo North.
