Dear Dublin Event Guide Supporter!

I searched and found LOTS of free events for you again and it is my pleasure to present them all to you in this list full of entertainment, art, fun and enjoyment. :-) I hope you will have a great weekend …possibly with the help of some or all of these events.

And I also want to remind you about MY favourite event in Dublin. It will happen NEXT weekend and it is the City Spectacular (formerly known as “Street Performance World Championships”) it is the best event in Dublin if you ask me and you should DEFINITELY make time for it on Saturday and/or Sunday of next week (13+14 July). It will be two days of amazing Street Performances and fun in Merrion Square and I will tell you more during the week on the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page and in next week’s Dublin Event Guide newsletter.

Thanks for your support last week and if it is ok with you, we will continue that approach so that (hopefully) I will not ever need to pester you for donations anymore. :-)
This is how the funding thing works (and it doesn’t cost you a cent!): Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and click on the ad banner that is at the very top of the page! If you don’t see an ad banner there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) It is just a few cents that I will get, but if enough people click on it – and it only takes a few seconds! – , it might do the job to cover the cost for sending the Dublin Event Guide. Thank you!

And here are some of this weekend’s free events. All events are sorted by start time, but watch out for the few events that have a “++” in front of them, the are particularly recommended. ;-) ALL events in this list are free, but some require booking!
