Kilkenny brings visitors and locals together all year round to celebrate their shared love of arts, culture, food, music, business, and much more through a year-round calendar of Festivals.

During these festivals, the streets of Kilkenny bustle with life. Visitors arrive from far and wide in search of those festival moments that only Kilkenny offers: Kicking back to classical music in Butler Gardens during the Arts Festival, wolfing down street-food in the warming autumn sun during Savour, or randomly finding yourself the drummer at an infamous Hole in the Wall pub gig.
