Unique Fire Drums heat up the night at Killarney Bonfire Night.

This year’s Bonfire Night has been rescheduled to Saturday 22 July, 2023.

Help us heat this place up!  You are invited to Killarney’s Winter Party with creative fire drums, live fire performance, country rock music, fireworks, and, of course, a giant bonfire.

This year’s event will be fully ticketed with tickets available on-line through Trybooking. Tickets must be pre-purchased.

Follow the Killarney Bonfire Night facebook page for up-to-date information.

Organised by the Killarney Bonfire Night Committee, now a sub-committee of the Killarney Show Society, ticket fees, stalls, raffles and activities raise money for many Killarney community organisations including long-time beneficiary Killarney Memorial Aged Care.
