An artistic exploration of life lived on the edge of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way served up in a festival of words, art and music. The festival returns in pandemic-friendly form from 09-17 October 2021, in association with the Ice House.

Ballina Fringe Festival's 2021 theme is the ‘The Past’, and the programme will feature readings from Galway author Lisa McInerney and Mayo County Council’s current writer-in-residence Elizabeth Reapy, a film exhibition by internationally-celebrated film-maker and artist, Vivienne Dick.

There will also be live music from Billow Wood, Greg Pearle, David Munnelly and Shane MacGowan, circus performances and workshops in Ballina's stunning Belleek Woods, a drag and dinner performance afternoon with Miss Neon Love and art workshops with Kiera O’Toole, a local artists’ exhibition curated by Nuala Clarke. The street art project ‘Pure Ballina!’ also returns, featuring renowned artists Maser and Canvaz.
