Our Supporters Open for Business

June 04, 2020

(last updated: June 4)

Over the years, our supporters have enabled us to bring extraordinary 
creative experiences 
from across the world 
to curious young minds in the 
West of Ireland. In 2019 alone, their support helped us to subsidise our average ticket price by 76%, deliver free workshops to 1,456 children, support 131 artists, employ 69 individuals during our festival and provide 968 free tickets to school teachers, special needs assistants and disadvantaged families and children. And so much more...

We are deeply grateful to them all for keeping the Baboró spirit alive. While not all are open for business, we are compiling a list of those who are offering whatever services they can.

View all of our supporters here.
