Special Music Festival events

Plans are coming along nicely for the 2019 Arklow Music Festival which will see the 50th anniversary take place from Saturday, March 2 to Sunday 10, 2019.

The people of Arklow are being asked to take part in the new Arklow Music Festival amateur photography competition and the Best Musical Window Display competition.

The photography competition is open to all non-professional photographers who are being invited to take a photo which they think best represents Arklow. Prizes will be awarded in the under 18 and over 18 categories and all entries will be displayed at the Arklow Music Festival memory lane exhibition in Arklow Library in March. The closing date for entries is Thursday, February 28. For further information contact Maria Nolan at or 086 8473187.

Meanwhile, in conjunction with the annual festival, the Arklow & District Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the award for the 'Best Musical Window Display' competition. All local traders are encouraged to support Arklow Music Festival by decorating and displaying their windows with a musical theme.
