Culture Night Roscommon 2023 was officially launched at Roscommon Arts Centre recently. The event invites everyone, everywhere, on one joyful night, to discover and celebrate all that our culture is today.

With a rich and diverse programme of events that span layers of arts and culture including music, film, literature, heritage, food, craft, history, visual art, in diverse venues across County Roscommon.

Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir 2023 will take place on Friday, 22nd September and this national event connects everyone to cultural activities locally and nationally.

Events in Roscommon kick off at 4pm and run until midnight which means that audiences can experience culture for as long or as short, as early or as late as they like!

It’s about sampling and experiencing a range of arts and culture in the county’s eclectic cultural venues in Ballaghaderreen, Boyle, Castlerea, Cootehall, Frenchpark, Keadue, Knockcroghery, Roscommon town and Strokestown.

Commenting on the launch of Culture Night Roscommon, Cathaoirleach Cllr. John Keogh remarked: “We encourage everyone to have a look at the Roscommon programme curated by the Arts Office – there is bound to be an event nearby. We are delighted to support the Roscommon artists, performers, organisers and venues and thank them for their time in preparing and creating the exciting work which will be presented on Culture Night.”

Roscommon County Council Arts Officer Rhona McGrath thanked the various venues, artists and groups who responded to the call out to host events, in particular the Brothers of Charity for coming on board this year with an exciting disco night at Roscommon Arts Centre for the very first time.

“There will be no shortage of arts and culture to be enjoyed in the county indoors and out on Culture Night. And we encourage audiences to continue supporting the many venues and organisations who run arts and cultural events throughout the year”, concluded Ms. McGrath.

Culture Night Roscommon is brought to you by Roscommon County Council in partnership with the Arts Council, artists and cultural organisations throughout the county. For more information on Culture Night check out or join the conversation on Roscommon Culture Night Facebook page.
