Welcome to Carlow Arts Festival, the first big Cultural event of Summer 2017. The festival is a celebration of the many extraordinary riches the arts has to offer from national and international artists.

We have hand-picked world festival premières, award-winning shows, immersive visual arts projects, the best possible gigs for the O’Haras Pavilion and a whole host of family-friendly and free events. 

Our Festival HQ is at the beautiful Carlow College, St. Patrick’s, where you can immerse yourself in artistic adventures over the week-long festival.
