Cork has long held huge commitment and passion for music, the arts, sport, learning, culture and heritage. And whilst we do not profess to be unique in this regard, the City has set itself apart by showcasing this commitment and passion through the continued successful staging of a broad program of festivals. The City Council has been proud to support the various Festivals, not only as a means of endorsing the commitment of the organizations and individuals involved, but as a way of rightfully placing the City on a national and international stage.
