Welcome to the 11th annual Ennis Street Arts Festival! The streets of our beautiful town will come alive with fun, art, culture and entertainment provided by International, National and Local Artists. This year we are celebrating ‘Clare-County of Cultures 2016’ with our theme, which is ‘Culture agus Ceol’.

From the 4th to the 10th of July, Ennis will become a hub for children and adults to explore their artistic side and experience many different events: children’s workshops, poetry, theatre, visual arts, comedy, arts exhibitions, street entertainment, music and dance, Art & Craft Market and the duck race; there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Of course none of this would be possible without the many volunteers and the local community who put their time and energy into making this festival the fun family event it has become.

So come and join us for an exciting weekend where magic will be made! You are sure to find something you’ll love..!!!
