About Us

Welcome to Cairde Sligo Arts Festival – an eight-day cultural adventure set amidst the stunning backdrop of the Wild Atlantic Way – now in its 11th year.

Highlights include Meascan a new cross-cultural collaborative work commissioned especially for the festival; a powerful literary strand, featuring the first ever Irish event with genre-busting Maggie Nelson; and the premiere of the darkly comic Uprooted by Brokentalkers.

Alongside events for young inquisitive minds, we also welcome our first ever Cairde Young Curators programme which presents a series of music, workshop and film carefully selected by our youth panel. At the heart of the programme lies a varied music strand featuring unique collaborations in special locations.

You can read our full programme announcement here.

Cairde Sligo Arts Festival is a registered charity and would like to thank its funders, sponsors and supporters including The Arts Council, Sligo County Council, Sligo BID, Sligo Leader and more.
