Join us! Be a part of the Festival Opening Event
At 1pm on Friday June 12th, people will gather at 4 locations - Grand Parade, Parnell Place, Patrick St & South Mall. From these locations they will be led in a Miniature Mardigras Style procession to outside the GPO on Oliver Plunkett Street, where Festival Favourites Lords of Strut will have a 5 minute dance party to officially launch Cork Midsummer Festival. It's an opportunity for Cork people and visitors of all ages to come together, celebrate the city and have fun!
There are three ways you can get involved in this event:
1. Videos will be uploaded by Lords of Strut with basic dance moves that you can learn in advance and join in with on the day

2. Crash course - join the Lords on June 2nd and 9th between 6.30pm – 8pm at the Circus Factory, Albert Quay for a crash course in the Flash Street Party

3. If you are part of a group that already has a great idea or routine that you would like to bring to the Party, Lords of Strut would love to hear from you
All welcome! For more information and to get involved email
