Festivals & Events of all shapes and sizes are held in towns and villages across the county and play an important role in attracting thousands of visitors to Cork annually, which in turn generates a substantial economic return for the Cork region. Cork County Council, as a significant financial contributor to festivals/events throughout the county, are organising this Workshop (in conjunction with AOIFE), with a view to helping support festivals to maximise their growth potential and gain valuable industry insights.

Prior to the Festival & Events Workshop, The Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Patrick Gerard Murphy will formally launch Cork County Council’s Updated ‘Festival / Events Guidelines and Policies for Cork County’ at 5.45 PM, which we invite you to attend.

To secure your place please contact Sharon Conroy by emailing sharon.conroy@corkcoco.ie or calling 021 4285613.

We hope to see you there!
