The fifth annual Stoneybatter Festival returns this year from Friday, June 18 to Sunday, June 20.
The organisers say there is a “lively programme of activities and an engaging blend of virtual events featuring the best our inner city village has to offer.
“There has been a renewed sense of community and friendship in the area over the last year as people connected with their neighbours, often going above and beyond to help and support each other during lockdowns.
“As we emerge from the dark days and look forward to better times, the Stoneybatter Festival wants to bring a little light to those living in our community.”
Summer planting has taken place around the village and a new mural is to be unveiled on Manor Street.
Residents are encouraged to display window boxes and plants outside their homes, along with art or poetry in windows.
“We would also encourage residents to support homegrown businesses by shopping locally.”
A host of competitions and contests will take place across the weekend including Woofstock Online, Mrs Doyle’s Virtual Batter Bake-Off, a Short Film Competition for young people and,My Museum, a competition run by the National Museum of Ireland.
