Wainfest is an annual week-long, countywide arts and book festival dedicated to children across Donegal. In 2018 the festival will run from the 6th until the 14th October.
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 home schoolers in the area allowing them to access the very best in children's performances.
