- Imagine Arts Festival Celebrates its 20th Anniversary -


Welcome to the 20th anniversary of Imagine Arts Festival, and to this year's hybrid programme, in which we hope there is something for everyone to enjoy. This year's festival promises to enhance Waterford's tradition as a centre for the arts by making events available to a wider audience than usual. Our programme includes music, literature, dance, visual art, performance and history, as well as incorporating Waterford Writers Weekend.

Imagine would like to say ‘thank you’ to all of our artists, volunteers and audience, and also to the sponsors and advertisers who have contributed in so many ways over the past 20 years. We would also like to say a special ‘thank you’ to Waterford Council, the Arts Council and our venue and media partners for their continued support.
