Family fun at the free festival in Fitzgerald’s Park this weekend


Cork’s first ever ETB Youth Festival will roll into action in Cork City this Saturday 14th May in Fitzgerald Park.

Seó YouthFest will provide a platform for young people to showcase their talents. From musical performances, art and theater to sports and other activities.

The festival is free to the public and there’s something for the whole family, including information booths, food vans and opportunities to try out new sports and virtual reality challenges.

Cork Education and Training Council’s youth services development manager, Mick Finn, explained that ‘this event has been in the imagination for some time, but it’s only now when we come out of the Covid-19 restrictions, that it has been possible to organize it and we look forward to providing a platform for young people to show their talents.

The launch of the festival is the first of its kind in Leeside

The ETB officer also said that there is a full music, rap and DJ program planned and even an interesting artwork installation based on the situation in Ukraine.

There will be free entry to the Cork Public Museum for the public and guest appearances by musicians from the band to cap off this exciting day.

So if music, art and activities are your thing, stop by the park this weekend to enjoy a wonderful day of color and family fun.
