Belfast Mela

COVID 19 Safety Promise

Your safety is our number one priority and we are implementing a robust Covid 19 management plan to ensure you can visit this year’s festival with peace of mind.



As society moves out of lockdown and we see the reopening of our economy we will continue to apply the latest rules and regulations in relation to how we plan and manage this year’s Mela events.


We have taken the decision to run events over a full week so there is something for everyone to enjoy and get involved in, from small events and pop up performances to walking tours and the much loved event at Botanic Gardens.


We anticipate that there will be numerous changes in rules and regulations over the coming weeks and we believe that some of the regulations we are putting in place now, will not be required by the time of the events.
As we move closer towards the event in August we will be publishing our full safety guidelines for each event, what you can expect for us as festival organisers, and what we expect from you as attendees.


We look forward to seeing you all at one of our festival events from 23rd – 29th August and celebrating with you in a safe and enjoyable environment.
