K Fest is a fairly new and very welcome addition to the festival scene in Kerry. It is held in Killorglin over the June Bank Holiday weekend each year and offers a fresh take on art, music, poetry and all things cultural. 

There's a wide range of interests catered for and all with a friendly, young energy. A great weekend for the young and the young at heart!

Pop-up art galleries and installations are housed in unlikely locations all over the town including the buildings left vacant as a result of the economic downturn.


Check out:

  • Art - For the 2013 event the K-Fest Festival converted 19 buildings into galleries, showed the works of over 60 artists, with an average gallery attendance of 300 people over the four days of the festival.
  • The Screaming Pope Prize, named in honour of a Francis Bacon artwork, is an annual prize presented to an emerging, Irishbased, Visual Artist
  • Film - Local musicians play an original Film Score composition live with the movie.
  • The SECRET Cine CLub offers fans of groundbreaking films the opportunity to meet in an extraordinary venue in Killorglin to watch a film that remains a secret until the credits actually roll across the screen! Look out around town for clues during K-Fest.
  • Poetry Sessions and Spoken Word
  • Traditional Irish Music Sessions
  • Family Corner - With Kid's cinema, Hand-made boat race, Fairy Trails, Face Painting, Art and Dance
