Following on from the huge success of the events in 2022, Dublin City Council Funtropolis is bigger and better than ever for 2023, with two whole weekends of FREE family fun with a packed programme set to amaze and delight families from near and far, with children of all ages. The events will be taking place at Merrion Square Park on July 8th & 9th and at Mountjoy Square Park on August 19th & 20th from 12pm to 6pm each day.
Set to the backdrop of stunning Georgian Dublin, the events are shaping up to be the ultimate summer family events and are conveniently accessible by both Bus & Luas routes. The fantastic, multicultural dance network that is Go Dance for Change will also be on hand with performances at both Merrion Square Park and Mountjoy Square Park to represent and showcase the range of diverse cultures that make the city the amazing place it is today.
Also pictured is Dublin City Council’s brand new outdoor mobile child sensory unit which will be available for use at both Dublin City Council Funtropolis events and all suitable Dublin City Council outdoor events thereafter, for children who identify as neurodiverse. With the approval of the Dublin City Council Arts, Culture, Leisure, and Recreation Strategic Policy Committee the unit was designed, developed and constructed from the proceeds of the Dublin Winter Lights ticketing fees in Merrion Square Park in 2022.
