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.
It's not just during school hours either! Beginning and ending with families at heart, 2018 will see 40 family events across Donegal for families to enjoy, including some pre-festival events, which support our Right to Read Plan.
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 22nd year of bringing the very best in children's entertainment to Donegal in 2018.
Most events are free. Visit www.wainfest.ie for booking information.
