The Magic of Christmas Cheer comes to Arklow


Arklow will come alive to the sights and sounds of Christmas Cheer this year, with just under fifteen weeks to the big Day. The Arklow Christmas Festival Committee are leaving no stone unturned as they prepare for something really special this year in Arklow, building on the success of last year.


The committee is made up of Business Groups, Music Groups, Traders, Bridgewater S.C., Arklow Chamber of Commerce and Arklow Municipal District. With a wide cross section of people the group have already met six times so far this year and planning of events is well under way. A programme of events is to be finalised in the coming weeks and will include music acts, fireworks, Shop Local initiative, Markets, Santa Clause, shop window competition and much more.


New lighting is planned this year in the Park, Bandstand and on the Bridge coming into town. Sponsorship is currently being sought from various businesses in the town for new lighting initiatives and decorative features on the roundabouts and other areas to keep business locally and shop in Arklow for Christmas this year. Please support in whatever way you can and showcase what Arklow has to offer locally.


Keep up to date on all activities and events on our Facebook page, which will be updated daily. All help and support would be greatly appreciated.
