THIS year the Fes­ti­val will kick off with a guided tour of Glen­dalough Es­tate on Wed­nes­day, July 31and will end with the hugely pop­u­lar Round­wood Street Fes­ti­val Day on Sun­day, Au­gust 4.

As ar­range­ments fall into place we will up­date our web­site www.round­wood.ie and our Face­book page, so please check back for up­dates as we near the kick off date.

One of the high­lights of the Round­wood Fes­ti­val is the ca­noe race on the Up­per Vartry Reser­voir. Regis­tra­tion for the race is at 4.30 p.m. on Satur­day, Au­gust 5 at the Up­per Vartry Dam (be­side the Wick­low An­gler’s boats). The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all swim­mers aged of 13 or over. This year the com­pe­ti­tion has a spe­cial vet­eran class and ru­mour has it that there is se­ri­ous train­ing go­ing on and an up­surge in the sale of row­ing ma­chines in the area!

If tak­ing to the wa­ter isn’t your cup of tea then come over to cheer on the rest. There is am­ple park­ing at the Round­wood AFC foot­ball pitch or take a walk from the vil­lage on the re­cently resur­faced trail from Wa­ter’s Bridge on the Newtown Road.
