In the mood for a different type of weekend after spending last week in a tent, down at Stradbally? We've teamed up with Dublin Gazette to bring you the best events on in the city over the coming days.

Dublin Fringe Festival

This year’s Dublin Fringe Festival starts on Saturday (8th Sept) and will run until September 23 across a number of venues in Dublin city. A host of different events will be part of this annual curated, multi-disciplinary festival, which focuses on new and innovative approaches to the arts.

This year’s Fringe will see gigs from the likes of upcoming Dublin grime act Mango x Mathman, comedy performances from Foil Arms and Hog, a range of different theatre productions, art shows and several different talks and lectures.

Some events are free, while others will be ticketed. The full line-up for this year’s Fringe is available now at fringefest.com, as well as information on where to purchase tickets.

I Love Terenure 2030 Annual Family Fun Day

Bushy Park will become a hive of family fun this Saturday as the I Love Terenure 2030 Annual Family Fun Day takes place. A market will run in the park from 10am on the day, before the festivities truly get under way from 1pm.

You can expect a host of activities, including a giant zip line, a bouncy castle, face painting, live music, the Dublin Circus Project and much more to entertain you. The Terenure Men’s Shed will also be at the fun day, showing off their projects from over the past year. For further information, see the I Love Terenure page on Facebook.

THE Catherine Lawlor School of Art is holding its 16th annual art exhibition on Saturday and Sunday in Malahide Tennis Club. Over the years the event has raised funds for the Jack and Jill Foundation, Temple St Hospital and Down Syndrome Dublin.

There will be 148 paintings on display by 62 artists. Raffle tickets will be on sale over the weekend for the duration of the exhibition with some beautiful prizes. Proceeds this year go to the St Francis Hospice, Raheny.

Fingal Fleadh (Thursday to Sunday)

Swords Castle will be at the heart of the event with concerts from Kíla (Friday), Danú (Saturday), The Dixie Micks and the Whileaways (Sunday) in the Castle Marquee, and lots more.
