Note from Chairperson of Foxford Walking Festival

“Following discussions with the Riverfest organisers, we agreed to hold both festivals over the same weekend as we felt there was a need to provide entertainment for walkers in the afternoons/evenings and Riverfest fulfils this need perfectly. Energetic walkers will now be able to enjoy Riverfest activities on their return to the town on both afternoons and people attending Riverfest will have an opportunity to sample the beauty of the Mayo countryside on organised walks. We are confident that the two festivals will complement each other and the two committees are working closely together to ensure the success of both”.

Comment from Brian Quinn, Client Services Manager, Fáilte Ireland

"Foxford Walking Festival is an ideal example of a community run festival. As an experience off the Wild Atlantic Way, it draws in visitors from near and far, to enjoy the glorious scenery and incomparable welcome of north Mayo. I'd like to wish the organisers and Foxford Ramblers Walking Club all the very best"
