Following 18 months of being curtailed by pandemic restrictions, Clontarf is going to come alive next weekend with a fiesta of circus acts and leading Irish street performers.

‘Fiestaval Street Arts & Circus Festival’ will dazzle and delight with world-class performers – promising hours of belly-laughs and side-splitting acts – for all ages to enjoy. 


Alfie Byrne Park in Clontarf will be transformed into a bustling family festival on Saturday next, September 25. Fiestaval is free-to-attend but pre-registration for tickets is essential due to limited capacity and safety restrictions.

Attendees can expect a jam-packed day of unrivalled excitement and entertainment from magicians, acrobats, sword-swallowers and stilt-walkers with comedian Damian Clarke to host the event.

While ‘Hakuna Matata’ became the mantra of Dublin’s gold Olympian medallist, Kelly Harrington, it’s also the name of an east African high skilled acrobatic and lively limbo duo who will perform in Clontarf next weekend. See also the award-winning Tumble Circus’ all-new high-energy show Cycle Circus and interactive roaming stilt-walkers and stilt-cyclists from Dublin Circus Project.

And all the while, Damian Clarke will have you in stitches with some hilarious audience interaction along the way!
