Join us for PARKFEST – Cairde Sligo Arts Festival’s funfilled, massive family day out featuring music, theatre, circus; art, craft & science workshops & delicious food. This year’s Park Fest presents street theatre specialist Nakupelle’s brilliantly funny and physical performance of The Trap, described as ‘a never ending stream of comic business, movements, actions and reactions .. slapstick in the very best tradition of Charlie Chaplin & Buster Keaton’.

The entire park comes to life with a programme including Irish percussion group Maracatu Ilha Brilhante, specialising in the beautiful songs and powerful rhythms of Maracatu Baque Virado, Brazil; the multi-award winning entertainer and magician Joel M; street performer Cillian Rogers; music and performance by Sligo Gospel Choir, Sligo Indian Association, Moonstone, Emmzi, The Well Dressed Hobos; family yoga with Louise Waters, and much more.

Free admission.
