About the Festival

From morning til night during the first week of July, familiar spaces aretransformed – For One Week Only! – and places we don’t know or have forgotten are revisited. Watch, listen…or dip your toe in and get involved! It’s up to you – it’s your Clonmel Junction Arts Festival.

Clonmel Junction Arts Festival started almost 20 years ago as a celebration of touring theatre and live music. Over the years, it has grown into a week-long arts festival where national and international acts share a stage with some of the best local talent.

Whether you’re a confirmed culture vulture or just dipping a toe in for the first time, arts festivals are a great way to experience theatre, music, art exhibitions and more.

The 2019 edition featured an exciting new cabaret venue, some pop-up art installations in the heart of Clonmel, a host of music and theatre shows, as well as lots of ways to get involved either as a spectator, or a performer!

As always, the festival was delighted to welcome volunteers – it's a great way to meet people and to get up close and personal with art! Contact us on volunteer@junctionfestival.com if you'd like more information.
