Baboró's Children's Panel Says "Welcome to Baboró!"
In this video, the Children’s Panel explains what to expect at Galway’s annual festival for children and families. This year's Baboró festival will take place 13 - 22 October, and we look forward to welcoming families and schools to theatres, galleries, libraries, and other venues across the city and county.

Signing up to our newsletter is the best way to receive our festival programme, information about how to buy tickets, and opportunities for schools and artists.
We at Baboró enjoy working with like-minded people on collaborative projects. We love to collaborate with artists, educators, funders, sponsors, venues - in fact anyone who shares our passion for the importance of creativity in the lives of children!
Our 2023 festival has come to an end!
Together we peered into little worlds, explored the cosmos, saw each other from hilarious new perspectives, danced in a rain of paint and dived into magical worlds.
Many families and schools do not have the means to access the arts.
Baboró works to address this barrier by subsidising tickets to our annual festival from a production cost of €35 per person to €10 and less (2022 festival subsidised by 78%). We also run free events, free workshops and provide free tickets to underrepresented communities.
Your support maintains this subsidised ticket price for all children and provides free tickets to teachers, carers and disadvantaged communities.
