Welcome to Samhain: Limerick's Hallowe’en Festival 2021

 

Samhain celebrates Irish culture with focus on Limerick heritage and traditions surrounding Hallowe'en; with community involvement, public participation at its core. Samhain celebrates and showcases the medieval quarter of Limerick City.

Lumen Street Theatre bring ‘Samhain’, Limerick’s Hallowe'en Festival back to the streets of Limerick between October 28th - 30th. This year’s festival will be Live and in person with some online content, an affair full of diversity for all the family. 

Lumen Street Theatre's vision is to add to the vibrant artistic life of Limerick City and County. We collaborate with distinctive and inspiring local community organisations to co-create new work that inspires pride and ownership of our cultural identity through education and street spectacle.

I will miss the parade so so much! Dancing on the street, next to a giant disco swan is even more fun than trick r’ treating

In one very special event, a new festival is born, and already it feels like it has an identity and is loved.
