Kilkenny Arts Festival was originally founded in 1974 by a group of classical music enthusiasts. In recent years, the festival has broadened its programme to include theatre & dance, classical music, street, literature and visual art and craft.
Underpinning the presentation of events is the commitment to bring work to Kilkenny that would not be seen outside the festival context, and a desire to commission and produce new work from Ireland and abroad. Every year, for 10 days in August, Kilkenny comes alive with a feast of artistic entertainment for all.
The city’s oldest and largest non-profit festival now draws more than 50,000 visitors annually who come and partake in all that Kilkenny has to offer. So come to Kilkenny, be part of the festival and experience the Arts in a way you will never forget!
