10th Annual Cork Coal Quay Family Festival 2022: Will Resonate with Nostalgia of Yesteryear.

Supported by: Cork City Council, Cornmarket Street & North Main Street Traders.

On Saturday, August 13th, the Cork Coal Quay Family Festival will come alive on Cornmarket Street, Cork City.

This unique, voluntary fun-filled family festival will celebrate the heart and soul of Cork City - the Coal Quay with its rich vibrant colourful heritage, tradition and culture in music, song, story and much more. While Cork's wonderful musicians and bands perform live music on stage, don't be surprised if you see some of the grand auld characters of the Coal Quay winding and weaving their way through the colourful crowd!

On show will be a fabulous photographic exhibition of old maps and illustrations along the street showcasing the good auld Coal Quay Market in its former days with its quintessential traders dressed in traditional shawls.

Why not dress-up in traditional costume - your grandmothers and grandfathers’ clothes and join in the party atmosphere. Come along and join the fun on the good auld Coal Quay - a treat for all the family.
