Kilkenomics – the world’s first economics festival

events banner future

Kilkenny is home to some of the best festivals in the world, from mega music events and epic live performances to extraordinary stand up shows, with a schedule that’s ever growing and always changing but for now we must STOP and stay safe.

The safety of visitors to Kilkenny is of the utmost importance to us. Kilkenny Tourism are following the advice from government officials for the reopening of Tourism sectors in the county. Below you can see some of the many festivals that will return to Kilkenny bigger and better than ever before in a new world of social distancing.

For now you can dream from home of better days to come!

Kilkenomics

Save the date in your diary, November 5th – 8th 2020. Kilkenomics – the world’s first economics festival – brings together some of the world’s leading economists, financial analysts and media commentators with some of our funniest, sharpest standup comedians. We’ve been called “Davos with jokes” and we wouldn’t disagree with that assessment.

What started as a way to make sense of the 2008 economic crash has turned into the Kilkenomics festival as we know it today. The aim of Kilkenomics has always been to take economics out of the conference room and academia and make it accessible to ordinary people’s lives.

Our informal, entertaining formats invite our audiences to engage and enjoy. As we like to say: it’s serious, but it’s fun too! Jump into Kilkenomics and engage with as many shows as possible, equip yourself with the information and insight we hope can help us all make smart choices for our futures – inform and entertain yourselves. To quote Kilkenomics regular – Gerry Stembridge “Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s about economics, it’s actually about life”
