Cairde Sligo Arts Festival
Inspired by the creative energy of Ireland’s Northwest, Cairde Sligo Arts Festival is a unique coming together of artists and audiences. It is a celebration of imagination and shared experience that welcomes all.

Highlights for 2021 include Seven Sisters, a major new commission of an illuminated outdoor spectacle by LUXE, Tumble Circus’ Cycle Circus, Writing from the West featuring Kevin Barry, Louise Kennedy and Una Mannion at Hawks Well Sligo, Colm Mac Con Iomaire and Maija Sofia at Juniper Barn, Redmond O’Toole at Markree Castle, the return of the Vagabond Voices Series, the introduction of Far In Far Out, a Visual Arts Trail and much more.

The 2021 festival programme will take place across digital and live streaming platforms – as well as in person events. Much of the programme has been designed to be safely delivered outdoors with a small number of indoor events in line with government restrictions.
