Carlow Arts Festival 2016.
Carlow is home to the first big cultural event of Summer 2016 – the 37th Carlow Arts Festival.
It’s 10 unforgettable days that roam across County Carlow in three connected strands: Get inspired at the Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas, travel up-river with the unique floating mini-festival that is Barges on the Barrow, and top it all off with a big splash of colour, culture and creativity in Carlow Town.
This year the Festival HQ returns to its spiritual home at historic Carlow College. The festival’s specially built pavilion will play host to theatre, comedy, family programming and music while circus, spectacle, and more will fill the grounds. Next door VISUAL will host the best of contemporary art which will spill out into the streets of Carlow.
Bring a picnic or check out what’s on offer but be sure to spend the weekend at Festival HQ.
