Wainfest Annual Arts and Book Festival
Wainfest is an annual week-long, countywide arts and book festival dedicated to children.
The term "Wain" is a local affectionate word used when talking about a small child (wee one). And we think it's a great fit for our festival that caters just for them!
Since its inception in 1996, the festival has grown from strength to strength and is one of the highlights in the Donegal County Council's calendar of events. Wainfest plays a pivotal role for schools and homeschoolers in the area allowing them to access the very best in children's performances.
Wainfest makes an exciting return once again on Saturday the 5th of October 2019 with another amazing line-up. Expect to Connect with international authors, culture, the arts and heritage over the course of the 8 day festival in libraries, museums, cultural centres and partner locations.
Over the 8 days of this years festival, a grand total of 151 events will take place in many favourite familiar haunts as well as some exciting new partner locations.
Come and celebrate our 23rd year of bringing the very best in children's entertainment to Donegal in 2019.
Most events are free. Visit www.wainfest.ie for booking information.
