JuneFest is a community festival coordinated by Red Events which takes place in Newbridge, County Kildare over the June bank holiday weekend. It is an artist-led, community-based festival, designed to showcase the creative produce and enterprising spirit of the people of Newbridge.
It is an organic, home-grown festival. The events and activities are all organized by local people working as individual artists or through clubs, societies or projects. They include gigs, exhibitions, performances, walks, talks and markets, all scattered across the town and over 3 days and nights.
JuneFest reclaims, with art and events, spaces in the town that have become disused in the recession, such as vacant shop units and malls. The festival also emphasises the outdoors, with many events occurring at street-level, along walks, in the park, and in back yards.
