Welcome to the Cairde Arts Festival 2013
Cairde is Sligo's annual arts festival celebrating diversity and takes place this year from July 10th to 14th.
Sligo comes alive with an excellent range of music, theatre, dance, visual art, spoken word children's and family events and more. Events to inspire, enthrall, amuse, engage, challenge, take part in. Come join us!
Some of this year's highlights included our annual Park Fest on Sunday July 14th... this year it's brought to you by the crowd! Thanks to many generous Fund It pledgers Park Fest included the re-creation of an Olde Worlde Circus Carnivale in Sligo’s Peace Park on Sunday July 14th with magicians, sword swallowers, strong men and bearded ladies, puppet shows, acrobatics, music and much much more.
Cairde would also like to give big thanks and much apprectiation to all our donors and successful biders at our annual BIG auction. List of all our donors can be found here. The night was a great success.
