Welcome to the

Thurles Halloween Festival Website

Welcome to the 14th annual Thurles Halloween Arts Festival. Once again we have a wonderful festival line up ever, with some of the best national and international acts confirmed to perform this year.

Our policy of community participation and enjoyment is very much evident again, and with so many different forms of the arts on offer, there is something for everyone on this year’s programme.

I would like to thank my hard working committee for all their time and efforts over the last number of months. I of course, would also like to show my appreciation to all our sponsors, volunteers and festival partners for their generosity and help, without whom this festival could not take place.

Finally I hope that everyone who participates in our festival will both enjoy and remember it. Our aim is to have a festival that is open to everyone and one that will place Thurles on the map as a town with an Arts Festival to envy.
Cllr. Jim Ryan (Chairman)
