The Yulefest programme of events has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a festive staycation or family fun-activities Yulefest in Kilkenny has something for you.
With great shopping and food as standard come celebrate the magic of Christmas in the beautiful Medieval city and county.
The elves are busy finalising the programme but you can expect winter markets, elves workshops, movies, pop-up parks, live music, concerts, and lots more. The festival begins with Santa’s arrival into the city on Saturday the 27th of November….. Boating down the Nore, and cycling up to the Parade, Santa is arriving in style. Join him as he takes the green route across the city, by boat and by bike arriving on the Parade just in time to launch this year’s Yulefest. Watch on from the streets or join him on his Santa’s City Cycle. There will be Samba music, Digital Fire Street Performers and the 501st Garrisson Stormtroopers. It’s the most wonderful time of the year so root out your Christmas jumper and come join in as Santa is welcomed to the Medieval City to launch Yulefest 2021!
