Newbridge ‘Grassroots Festival’ will open on Thursday, September 12th and run until Sunday September 15th 2013. Following on from the success of Newbridge 200, held in September last year, it has been decided to make it an annual event.

The festival will be spread out across the town from The Curragh Racecourse to St. Conleth’s Church. Events will be hosted on the street, by the riverfront and in various locations across the town.

We are delighted to announce headline act, Soprano Singer Celine Byrne, at St. Conleth’s Church as this will be a spectacular event. On Saturday, Newbridge will come to life with a ‘Community Fun Run’, ‘Taste of Newbridge’, ‘Nua-Féile’ on the riverfront and a static Military display. The festival will close with a ‘Finalé Concert & Fireworks’ for all the family.

For more information the Festival office is based on The Avenue, Whitewater Shopping Centre.
