Now in its 33rd year, Westport Arts Festival has long since established itself on the west coast calendar as an exiting and diverse event. The festival is a locally run event for the enjoyment of thousands of tourists who visit the area annually.
This years programme will be run over a ten day period and will be made of a mix of daytime workshops, lectures and exhibitions which will complement the evening musical and theatrical programmes of Ireland's best known artists.
The line up of the this years festival spans folk and traditional through hip-hop and cutting edge dance music. From the Fairgreen to the Quay, from the Octagon to the Mall, there is an eclectic treasure of events during the Westport Arts Festival.
