HX Stay @ Home Festival 2021

The Harold’s Cross festival in 2021 will be almost entirely virtual. The festival has been running for more than 10 years and the aim is to continually increase the sense of community. The festival is run entirely by volunteers and takes place each year in May. This year it will run from Saturday 8th until Sunday 16th of May. Although it is mostly virtual this year – it is one of the most ambitious programmes yet and all the events are provided free of cost. We hope you will find something of interest in our festival and look forward to receiving feedback so that we can ensure it is relevant to all in the area.

Please note that details of how to access events will be posted a week before the festival on this website. Also please check the schedule close to the event because times and dates are subject to change.

Listen to Dublin City FM interview with Conor O’Mahony, It’s a good preview of the 2021 Festival
