THIS YEAR’S Phoenix Arts Festival promises a fresh new colourful programme of family fun and activities and it is proposed to host this year’s festival in the Town Park, Tullamore on Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8 next.

The Midland’s biggest community festival continues to grow and develop as more businesses, community groups and individuals become involved with various kinds of support, both financial and voluntary, organising their own events and making the Phoenix an annual celebration for the Offaly community.

The Phoenix has proven to be a welcome economic boost to the town and county, as local participation and visitor numbers grow year after year. It is the goal of the Phoenix to continue to build a stronger festival to welcome new visitors to the Offaly capital and increase community spirit.

The Phoenix Arts Festival requires significant funding to host the various events throughout the weekend and more than ever, the festival relies on the generosity and participation of local businesses.

Main sponsorship packages are also available for specific events to maximise visibility and promotion during the festival.

This year the festival continues its focus on giving businesses extra value for their contribution and are asking businesses to become a ‘Friend of the Phoenix’
