Festivals / Events Guidelines & Policies for Cork County officially launched

Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Patrick Gerard Murphy recently launched the Updated Festival / Events Guidelines & Policies at the Oriel House Hotel in Ballincollig. 

The launch took place ahead of the Cork Festivals & Events Workshop, which was organised by Cork County Council in conjunction with AOIFE (Association Of Irish Festivals & Events). The Workshop was open to Festival / Event organisers throughout the county and received a significant response, with over 100 attendees present.

Calling all Festival / Event Organisers

Festival and event organisers throughout the county will have opportunity to maximise their growth potential and generate additional revenue at Cork County Council’s Festival and Events Workshop, which is taking place at the Oriel House Hotel in Ballincollig, on the evening of January 22nd.  In recognition of the importance that festivals and events play in the economic growth and cultural identity of the county, Cork County Council are delighted to host this Workshop, in conjunction with AOIFE (Association of Irish Festivals & Events).

Cork Festival and Events Workshop

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.
