About Us



Carrick Carnival is a non-profit voluntary organisation which has been in operation since 2012, with the first festival being held in 2013 to mark the 400th anniversary of Carrick on Shannon being founded. The committee is made up of up to 20 volunteers who organise an annual 10 day festival with over 60 events many of which are free.

The festival is funded primarily through sponsorship and local fundraising and would not happen without the support of the local and national businesses that give so generously every year.

We also have received massive support from Leitrim County Council, An Garda Siochana, Waterways Ireland, Leitrim Tourism and the many agencies who provide assistance, help, advice and all the other things that are required along the way.

The committee would also like to thank everyone who joins in the festivities. Seeing people enjoy the events makes it all worthwhile!

We are always open to feedback and would love to hear from people who have attended events. Please get in touch via the contact page or email us on carrickcarnival@gmail.com

Finally we would like to say thank you to everyone who has provided photos for this site. We have tried to credit the owners of copyright where possible and we are happy to credit or remove photos if necessary – please get in touch with any feedback.

Thank you from all of us in the Carrick Carnival committee
