Dublin Docklands Development Authority call for historic and other marine craft to visit Docklands Maritime Festival, June 4th to 7th, 2010

The Docklands Authority has confirmed that it will host the Docklands Maritime Festival on the June bank holiday weekend [June 4th to 7th] for the eight year running.

With a record 150,000 visitors at last year's Festival, this year's event takes place on the quays both north and south of the Liffey with attractions for all ages. The river will be a buzz of activity and the tall ship, Jeanie Johnston will welcome visiting ships and other craft giving people the chance to experience first hand what life on the ocean waves is like.

The Docklands Authority would like to add more maritime activity to this year's festival and is inviting applications for provision of marine craft that would be of interest to the public including historic vessels or exhibits, sailing or rowing races or other demonstrations.
Along with the activity on the river, there will be plenty of entertainment for all the family including a breathtaking array of street theatre, musical entertainment and amusements all creating a fun carnival atmosphere.

The Festival will also feature the biggest (and best!) outdoor market in the city, with a fabulous selection of crafts, clothing, jewellery, paintings, flowers and plants, as well as the mouth-watering gourmet meats, cheeses and breads.

For further information or to submit an application for participating in the Festival, please contact:
