The programming committee of Drogheda Arts Festival has made the difficult decision to cancel the festival in its entirety for 2020. While many services and shops are beginning to reopen, the restrictions around live events make it impossible for us to produce the Arts Festival later in the year. Health and safety for both our artists and audiences is our priority at this time. We would like to thank the Arts Council and Louth County Council for enabling us to pay cancellation fees to our cultural workers. For those who have purchased a ticket to an event, the box office in Droichead Arts Centre will be in contact when it opens again in August.

We look forward to returning in 2021 when we can bring the best of Irish and international artists to Drogheda once again.
