On both Saturday and Sunday we have all kinds of family events and attractions down by the quayside. With displays of falconry, children’s entertainment, market stalls and exhibits by the lifeboats, emergency services, Naval Services and much more it will create a truly magical weekend for everyone.

All of the individual events are listed on the Arklow Maritime Festival Facebook page too so check it out and we hope to see you over the weekend.

This event is held primarily as a fundraising event for Arklow Lifeboat, through generous sponsorship from local businesses we are able to provide a lot of the events for free, so please support the local businesses who support Arklow Lifeboat.
