COVID-19 has not been kind to grandparents, parents, children, schools, businesses or communities. Neither has it been kind to artists, technicians nor Spraoi. In fact, we’ve never needed each other more. Waterford people built Spraoi as an honest expression of our culture, community and sense of fun.

Spraoi Festival has become something of an August Bank Holiday institution. For three days, the city devotes itself to a variety of street art and spectacle, featuring hundreds of performers, live music, and an array of new street theatre – Irish and international.
Spraoi festival is a free urban festival in beautiful Waterford in the south-east of Ireland. It attracts nearly 100,000 people and the city streets act as a stage for acts from around the world”
Over three days the city is host to a plethora of street theatre entertainment, both local and from overseas, serving up what must be the best value and one of the most inclusive festivals on the circuit, with the entertainment being free and open to all.
