Volvo Ocean Race
There was a week-long festival in Galway this summer to celebrate the final leg of the Volvo Ocean Race coming to the city. The Festival in Galway had two areas, the Race Village which hosted crews, and the Global Village which hosted a series of major events.
A Green Tent was operated by Galway County and City Councils as part of the Global Village, which had 142,000 visits across the seven days of the event this summer.
