The first Galway Showcase will take place from Thursday April 16 to Saturday 18 throughout the city and Salthill when Galway’s arts, food, hospitality, and retail institutions host a series of events and displays.
Galway Showcase is a tourism initiative developed by Galway City Business Association and supported by Failte Ireland and the Hotels Federation. Participants so far include the Bold Art Gallery, Judy Greene, Treasure Chest, Martine’s Quay Street Wine Bar, Zhivago Records, and many other bars and nightclubs.
Through the three day Galway Showcase there will be a craft treasure trail, taking in more than 10 different places of interest including art galleries and pottery workshops.
There will be a free multi-cultural outdoor music concert, as well as exhibitions, readings, and an art competition. There will also be opportunities to learn some Irish, and on Thursday April 16 from 11am to 12 noon in the Galway City Library there will be stories and song for pre-school children.
