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 we have organised 31 events across Donegal for you to take part as a family.
A grand total of 119 events have been organised countywide and we are delighted to bring you events every single day of the festival.
Come and celebrate our 21st year of bringing the very best in children's entertainment to Donegal in 2017.
Booking is essential for almost all events.
