Maria Edgeworth Festival

Maria Edgeworth Festival in Edgeworthstown

The annual Maria Edgeworth Festival takes place every May. From it’s initial beginnings over twenty five years ago the Festival has grown to incorporate talks for second Level students, primary school poetry competitions, adult poetry, short story competitions and workshops, readings, historical trails, musical performances, nature walks, theatre performances and an 18th Century Costume Tea Party.  The Maria Edgeworth Festival in Edgeworthstown  has established itself as one of the best Literary events on the Irish Calendar and has attracted visitors from all over Ireland and abroad who share an interest in Literary History. The 2022 Festival is now over but we are already making plans for the 2023 event which will take place from the 4th to the 7th May 2023.  For Festival related enquiries please contact us festival@mariaedgeworthcentre.com
