First held in the summer of 2000 due to the cancellation of the Tullamore Agricultural Show because of the foot and mouth epidemic, it was to fill the void since the Show would not go on, and thus the town would not have a summertime attraction. Since the ban was lifted the following year, the Phoenix Festival continued, allowing Tullamore to host 2 summer festivals. Street entertainment, live concerts, activities, exhibits, carft and art fairs, and much more. [Official website]
