This year the Muckno Mania Festival celebrates its 20th Anniversary, having started out as a one day event in August 1999. The Festival continues to be staged as a family Festival which promotes sport and music with a particular focus on the Arts. This year the Festival theme is simply "20 Years of Mania" and throughout the weekend we hope to evoke the memories of past events and fun over the years.

As always the festival is driven by a dedicated group of individuals who work unselfishly each year to stage one of the most important and invaluable events in the town's annual calendar. The Muckno Mania Festival was first introduced by Castleblayney Community Enterprise Centre in 1999 and they continue to provide management and resources to support the committee which in turn ensure that the Festival has lasted 20 years.

The committee would like to thank our many supporters and sponsors and also the agencies that have provided financial assistance, not alone for Muckno Mania Festival 2018, but also throughout the past 20 years.
