Bealtaine Festival Event in Tuam Library

The Bealtaine festival is Ireland’s ground-breaking celebration of creativity in older age.
Bealtaine means ‘May’ with all of its associations of fresh starts, emergence and renewal. From 1st to 31st May nationwide, there are opportunities for you to get involved, to try something different and to simply enjoy yourself. It is a chance to meet people, make something new, set your own challenge or share a tradition across the generations.
An Age & Opportunity initiative, the Bealtaine festival is Ireland’s biggest collaborative arts festival, and it enjoys an international reputation. It unites communities and
diverse organisations all over the country. In the last 16 years, it has grown to include libraries, museums, care settings, active retirement groups, national cultural organisations and local authority arts offices.
