Welcome to our Festival!
The Annual Festival of Seafood means much more to our area than just a week of entertainment and fun. The Community Development Association introduced our first festival in 1985 and since its inception the proceeds of our Seafood Festivals have been invested in our community to help the development of social, recreational, sporting and tourist amenities.
This vision and subsequent developments have enabled our community to provide the wonderful facilities and amenities that you enjoy. You are welcome to the services and facilities in our Stella Maris Community Centre; experience the unique beauty of the community owned lands on Ballyteige Burrow with its walkways; take a walk along the sea front promenade leading to the Memorial Trail and Garden and continue to the boardwalk onto the sand dunes; you can stop off at our impressive and award winning children’s playground. The sport and recreational grounds at Crossfarnoge are also available. These represent the extraordinary achievement of voluntary effort, participation and commitment of this community and beyond. It has been underpinned by the enthusiasm of the Seafood Festival Committee, the many volunteers, residents and local groups from far and wide.
Your participation and support, in whatever way you can, will help the ongoing work to develop our village with its unique character and we will reap the rewards of another successful Festival in 2013.
