Clifden Arts Festival
The longest running community arts festival in Ireland, Clifden Community Arts Festival, now heading into its 40th year will take place from September 14-24 and yet again promises to have something to excite everyone in the 2017 programme.
It is a great celebration of the Arts which includes poetry readings, lectures, recitals, traditional music, concerts, comedy, etc. all enjoyed in a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere in one of the most beautiful places on the West Coast.
Time to take walks during the day, enjoy the lovely Autumn colours, eat in a great choice of restaurants, and then be inspired by Ireland's best artists as they mingle and talk with the local community and visitors alike.
Family events include Fairy trail, walking tours, pony show and an afternoon of fun in the Market Square on September 23 at 3:00 pm.
