Programme, Produce and Promote New Samhain Festival
Fáilte Ireland require a Service Provider (s) to programme, produce and promote the Samhain/Halloween Festival, as a large scale international festival to celebrate Ireland as the original home of Halloween which began as the ancient tradition of Samhain - the ancient New Year. The festival will motivate overseas visitor to Ireland at off-peak times and disperse tourism to areas outside of hotspots.
This new festival will seek to build on the existing work already taking place in the community through the Spirits of Meath and Flame of Samhain Festival, Athboy to ensure that Ireland is recognised nationally and internationally as the original home of Samhain and Halloween: an ancient festival with contemporary relevance that has spread across the world through both popular and high culture.
