Season of Yeats
We welcome you to Tread Softly…, a festival bringing the story of two of Sligo’s greatest sons to life with 19 days of Music, Theatre, Exhibitions and the Spoken Word. We sincerely hope you, both visitor and resident, will find events and activities to brighten up your summer and make your Sligo experience all the more enjoyable.
Tread Softly…is part of Yeats Festival Season, supported by Fáilte Ireland, which starts on June 13th, the poet’s birthday and the inaugural Yeats Day. The Season of Yeats continues right through the Cairde Festival in July to reach its finale in August with the Yeats International Summer School and the Tread Softly… festival.
