11 - Sunday 20 August 2017
Venue: Various locations around Kilkenny City
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 crafts.
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 2017 festival is set to be a cracker, so make sure to mark your calendar.
