Ballina Salmon Festival first took place in Ballina in 1964, and was at the time called the ‘Moy Salmon Festival’, based on the fact that Ballina was home to one of the best rivers in Ireland, with the best fishing waters and salmon in the country.

This is of course the case to this day!

In time, the festival was renamed the ‘Ballina Salmon Festival’, and today it remains one of the highlights of the summer months in the West of Ireland. Every year over 200,000 people descend on the North Mayo capital to enjoy our fantastic, community-based family-friendly festival.

The Ballina Salmon Festival is particularly proud of its family-centered focus.  One third of the festival’s entire programme is dedicated solely to children.

The action-packed programme also includes Family Fun Day, Live music,  Mardi Gras and the Fireworks Display and a Teddy Bears' Picnic.
