Event Description

Start this year's COVID-reconfigured festival 'A Month of Sundays' with Sunday 2nd August and again on Bank Holiday Monday in Wexford Town. Both days are effectively a paint-out with an easel display and awards. Canvases and pads will be stamped at check-in and you can display your day's work on your own easel at teatime on both days


Wexford town is, as always, at the heart of Art In The Open's festivities and lies at the mouth of the Slaney River. Founded by Vikings in 800AD, the town centres around a long main street parallel to the quayside and a series of narrow lanes down to the harbour. These lanes would have once reached water and been lined with boats. Today, they are brimming with old time pubs, art galleries, craft shops and celebrated restaurants.

Wexford's natural harbour, once a major maritime port, now acts as a port for fishermen and a leisure spot for locals. Over the festival, the quays can be found dotted with easels. A beautiful spot to unwind and take in the estuary, on clear days Raven Point and Rosslare Burrow mark the horizon.
