Festivals and Events

A special feature of summer in Baltimore and the Islands are the festivals and events that take place on various weekends from May to October. The area hosts more such happenings than you will find almost anywhere else in West Cork. The focus is generally on some aspect of culture, music, history, local produce or activity. They 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.
