About Us


Wicklow Arts Festival is a volunteer led event that takes place annually in May in the beautiful harbour setting of Wicklow Town. Now in its twelfth year, the Festival has grown with the town to become an important cultural fixture in the calendar with audience figures rising steadily year by year. For 2015 the Festival will be running over three consecutive days from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th May. There will be plenty going on for all ages and tastes including music, artisan market, poetry & workshops with internationally renowned performers featuring in the Festival.
