This is a unique festival in the Irish calendar, aimed squarely at kids and at getting shcools and families from thoughtout the West and beyond involved in a vast array of events that cover just about every aspect of the arts.

From relatively small beginings in 1998, the festival has grown massively – now more than 40,000 children attend the festival at some point and the only way that figure can go is up.

The programme is both broad and deep, encompassing music, dance, theatre, literature, film, puppetry, story telling and visual arts, with workshops, performances, discussions and exhibitions running in venues throughout Galway city. There are events aimed at children aged from three years to 16 years, and most will be enjoyed just as much by the adults they bring along!

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.
