This year's Festival will be the 18th in a row and we would like to invite you to come and enjoy this free, for-all-ages, event. Each year, over the June Bank Holiday, is a special occasion for the people of Carrickmacross and indeed the committee, both past and present, as there is always something for all tastes – everyone is catered for.


A hard-working group of local volunteers have offered their time and efforts, along with the support of Monaghan County Council and businesses in the area, into making this one of Ireland's fastest growing and most popular family festivals.

An event like this is a huge task and, as always, the work behind the scenes is never underestimated by the Committee or indeed, the people of Carrickmacross. All volunteers are working hard to make this year’s festival even bigger and better than before for everyone who comes to visit.


We would like to welcome you to join us in celebrating our 18th birthday where you and your family will experience a magical weekend filled with street entertainers, arts and crafts, kids entertainment, live music over four days on two stages and much much more.


Let me welcome you to the official website of the Carrickmacross Festival 2018. You can also contact us to let us know what you would like to see at this year’s event or let us know if you would like to get involved – you can join the organising committee or just volunteer some of your time over the weekend itself; we’re always open to new members, volunteers etc

So why not join me and the committee in June 2018 and experience one of the most enjoyable weekends of the summer and share in the mystical, fun and laughter of the Carrickmacross Festival 2018.

Hope to see you here!

David Maggs (Chairperson – Carrickmacross Festival Committee)
