Abhainn Rí Festival 2017

Friday 30th June to Sunday 9th July 2017


The Abhainn Rí Festival, is a unique community festival that showcases the diverse and exciting cultural and community life of the small town of Callan. Now in it’s 8th year, the eclectic festival’s ten day programme, running from Friday 30th June to Sunday 9th July, is bursting with visual art, music, theatre, heritage, inclusion, street theatre, architecture and food events. The real star of the Abhainn Rí Festival is the town itself and the programme highlights forgotten and overlooked corners of this handsome town,  such as Bridge Street, The Abbey Meadow, Lockes Hall, The Workhouse, Fennellys,  an old agricultural co-operative, and the streets of the town itself.
