Kilkenny Animated is the newest festival to join the already fantastic line up of festivals in Kilkenny.  Running for three days from 2nd-4th October, marvel at visual storytelling, incorporating cartoons, animation and illustration in a series of exhibitions, talks, performances, workshops and experiences. 

The festival is hosted by the incredible and twice Academy Award-nominated Cartoon Saloon and is set against and inspired by the history of Kilkenny’s medieval streets and slipways at the heart this beautiful city. 

Every day of the festival is jam-packed with jaw-dropping entertainment to stir up every emotion.  Have your breath taken away by storytelling so wonderful you’ll want to return every year.
