Bloom Fringe Festival Events.

Here in Excel Recruitment, we love nothing more than enjoying our city. With a plethora of eateries to choose from, the standard across Dublin and Nationwide continues to evolve when it comes to dining, drinking and event curation. This June bank holiday weekend sees the Bloom festival take place in The Phoenix Park. However, we’ve concentrated on the Bloom Fringe, for pure innovation and also how they are organising free events across the weekend.

Now in its second year the BloomFringe Festival sets to take the magic of Bloom in the Phoneix Park to various locations across the City between May 30th and June 1st. Bloom Fringe is motivated by themes of creativity, community and healthy living and is not-for-profit. Here are our picks across the day that you can enjoy for free in the City Centre.

Saturday May 30th

A Very Peachy Temple Lane Takeover : Temple Lane South (Beside KC Peaches, Temple Bar)

Temple Lane South will be getting a very Peachy takeover into the spirit of BloomFringe on May 30th .

This very cool corner of Temple bar will be occupied by guerrilla action as it turns into a pop up green space for the day. Lookout for Pop-up munchies by KC peaches and Peachy street art installations to tag yourself with and for all to partake in. Considering the success of the debut Peachy exhibition this one is not to be missed and perfect for kids
