In light of the on-going pandemic there will be no Tradfest in 2021. We are very disappointed to cancel for the second year in a row, but we want to play our part in keeping our community safe.

In the past, Kilkenny Tradfest has welcomed the best international, national and local artists in Irish music and we can’t wait to do that again in 2022.

For 2021 you can check out St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny’s virtual events, or take a trip down memory lane in our archive and on our youtube channel.

We’ll see you back here in 2022 for our best Tradfest yet!
