Dublin City Council Culture Company will deliver quarterly fairs in Richmond Barracks in 2023.
With these fairs we aim to:
There will be a total of four fairs a year, one per quarter, showcasing the talents of Irish makers, creatives and social entrepreneurs whilst providing genuine gifting options and a wonderful atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Through the Culture Company’s Culture Connects @ Richmond Barracks programme, there will be opportunities for people to attend cultural/creative workshops during the fairs and learn about our annual programme for repeat visits for other cultural and creative adventures.
We will have entertainment provided by local performers in our fabulous gardens and there will be tea, coffee and food available to purchase in the garden and café too.
The fairs will provide an opportunity for artists, businesses and social enterprises to showcase what they do and to build their own creative and business networks.
When possible, Inchicore Library will be open each day, and along with all their usual services they will have a special selection of books available that relate to the theme of each particular Fair.
The fairs will take place on the following dates with the following themes:
