Statement on Friday 13th March 2020


In the light of current circumstances and after close and continued monitoring of the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease) it is with regret that the decision has been made to cancel the upcoming Portadown Festival Association sections as follows:


Irish Folk Dancing   Sat 21 – Sat 28 March

Music                       Mon 30 March – Sat 4 April

Dance                     Fri 1 – Sat 9 May

Drama 16/3/2020    Cancelled remainder of Drama Festival


This difficult decision has not been taken lightly, but ultimately, the health and safety of our performers, audience, volunteers and adjudicators is paramount. We are all bitterly disappointed but do hope you understand.


All teachers, schools and parents who have entered children in these Sections will be contacted immediately.


Entry fees will be refunded in due course and we respectfully ask for your patience in this regard.


We would like to thank you for your continued support of Portadown Festival and look forward to welcoming you back again in 2021!




Updates will be issued on our webpage

And our Facebook pages Portadown Festival Association

and Portadown Drama Festival



Please keep safe everyone!
