All of our local groups are taking part in the festival, we have Arklow Pipe band, Arklow Majorettes, Arklow Sea Scouts, Arklow Rowing Club and many more.

Family entertainment forms, as always an important part of the festival and the younger fans will enjoy the many family-oriented events as well as the Cartoon Characters and their disco who will be down at quayside from 1pm on Sunday.

Music has become a large part of the Maritime Festival and this year is no different. We'll have music all weekend.

Meanwhile the volunteer organising group has done a great job of securing some tried and tested attractions as well as some new ones. Remember folks, as well as our team using the event to say thank you to all of our supporters, this event is primarily a fundraising event for our Lifeboat station, despite this most of our attractions are FREE thanks to the generosity and sponsorship of our local businesses.
