Smithfield Square, Saturday 21st September

BlueFire Street Fest – A free open-air intercultural arts festival that takes place in Dublin's historic Smithfield Square.

The festival is a non-profit social enterprise with a mission to promote social integration and cohesion amongst young Dubliners across all cultural backgrounds. Now in its 6th year, BlueFire Street Fest has refocused its artistic vision, expanded its team and taken a bold step in the direction of becoming a more socially responsible and ‘conscious festival'. 2019 will see the festival and its community of young change-makers embrace a wider public discourse, exploring the impacts we have upon each other and on our planet.

This year the festival will coincide with International Day of Peace; whose 2019 focus is Climate Action, and also with the 150th Anniversary of the birth of one of the world's greatest peace-makers Mahatma Gandhi. It is in honour of these significant events that the festival will embrace the theme of Peace | People + Planet throughout its programme, opening with the midday Global Minute of Silence held by the Lord Mayor of Dublin and members of the Tibetan Buddhist Centre.

The programme will feature the Global Village food and crafts market and Health and Harmony wellbeing fair, as well as a Music & Performing Arts Tent, street art murals and a Speakers' Corner, an engaging Talks & Workshops programme, open Dance Classes, community group performances and a Night-Time Projection event – all FREE to the public.

BlueFire Street Fest is supported by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council.
