The Ultimate Feis Checklist

There’s nothing quite like the chaos that comes with packing for a feis. Whether it’s a local one day competition, or a huge major that requires a couple of plane rides, it sometimes feels like you need to take everything but the kitchen sink (and sometimes a sink would probably come in handy!). No doubt you’ve gotten to a venue and had that awful moment of ‘oh no, I forgot something!’ where you have to race to a vendor or borrow from a feis friend.

It’s a new year and it’s time for a fresh start. We have created the Ultimate Feis Checklist to make life a little easier the next time you need to hit the road. We have put everything possible on the list – you might not need it all but it doesn’t hurt to think about! Download it, save it, print it out, and next time you have to pack for a feis you can tick things off as you go to make sure you’re prepared!

Is there anything you would add to the list? Do you have any advice for feis packing?

    I may have missed it but I think you forgot a mirror (that can preferably stand on its own, don’t know what it’s called in English), as it’s sometimes difficult to find one to do your hair and make-up.

      Good spot Cecile! Mirrors can definitely be difficult to come across at a feis, and bringing your own is ideal. Another good option is a makeup case with a built in mirror!

    Sock glue, safety pins, bobby pins, earrings, electrical tape, Gaffers tape, small scissors and a corkscrew (that latter at times comes in very handy!).

      A corkscrew!!! Love it! We’re sure the Feis Dads would also suggest a bottle opener, for emergency situations 😉
