FÉILE 2023

12th – 19th August

On 12th – 19th August, Féile returned for its 31st year with a packed programme including music, literature, film, sport, history, comedy, art, carnival, fun days, tours and events for children, young people and older people. What began as a one day festival in 1993 has since grown into the biggest community arts festival in the North West, attracting over 20,000 people annually to the programme of events.

Féile 2023 would not have been possible without the support of our funders at The Executive Office, (Urban Villages & Communities In Transition), Department of Foreign Affairs and the collaboration of our many partners, groups, initiatives, volunteers and residents from throughout the Bogside, Brandywell, Creggan, Bishop Street and Fountain areas who came together to shape and manage this year’s programme of events!

What We Do

The Féile involves numerous other organisations including:

and more!

Each year, they all come together to deliver a fantastic and productive programme of events, which can be in the form of music, sport, education, literature, visual arts, carnivals, fun days, health, discussions, lectures & conferences, community consultation and tours. The Féile therefore is only possible thanks to the commitment and hard work of a multitude of groups, volunteers and initiatives who come together each year.

You can see updates, information and photos & videos about the work we do on our blog and film pages!
