Púca Festival

ATHBOY - DROGHEDA - TRIM 3 NIGHTS OF MUSIC, FIRE, FEASTING AND MISCHIEF ACROSS THREE ANCIENT SITES WHERE SAMHAIN BEGAN. When light turns to dark and the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead thins, the creatures of Samhain, Ireland’s ancient Halloween tradition, come to life. Roaming the darkness like a shadowy spectre, the shape-shifting spirit of Pu´ca comes alive! Changing the fortunes of all who cross her path as she transforms the night into a colourful playground of hallowed celebration. Pu´ca and her misbehaving band of otherworldly characters invite you to visit the birthplace of Halloween for an all-new festival that celebrates the original spirit of the season. Over three spectacular nights, across three Festival locations we salute the Halloween spirits through folklore, food, myth and music, and light up the night sky with awe-inspiring and unearthly illuminations. Enjoy performances from KORMAC and the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Æ MAK,Pillow Queens, Just Mustard, David Keenan, Sive, Lisa O'Neil, Jerry Fish and many more Join us where Halloween's story begins...
