Bray is a vibrant, exciting town with lots of fun and exciting things to do. Numerous different festivals and events are held year-round so there’s always something happening!
Normally, at this time of the year, our summer event season would be in full swing but in line with the Government COVID-19 guidelines mass gatherings/events (including spectators) indoors and outdoors currently are not permitted as a result, no public festivals or events including funfairs will be going ahead this summer in Bray.
We are very optimistic that our festivals and family-focused events will be back stronger than ever in 2022.
If guidelines are updated Bray Tourism and the Town Council will carry out a risk assessment. Updates will be communicated via our website and social media network.
As soon as restrictions are lifted on mass gatherings we’re more than happy to help promote events for free as long as they are following the HSE / Irish Government all COVID-19 coronavirus guidelines in full.
