Festivals and Events

A special feature of summer are the festivals and events that take place on various weekends from May to October. Baltimore and the islands probably stage more of them than most places in West Cork. The focus is generally on some aspect of culture, music, history, local produce or activity. They may include displays, demonstrations, stalls, fun activities, competitions or live performances. Sometimes the emphasis is on taking part, although there is often a spectator element too as with the annual sailing and rowing regattas. And, whatever the event, there is usually extra entertainment around the village or island concerned.
