Featured Highlights #BIAF21

Welcome to Belfast International Arts Festival

Our aim is a simple one; to create a genuinely civic event of contemporary arts and ideas of international appeal and stature. See About Us

We’ve just delivered our 59th edition, from Wednesday 6 October  to Sunday 7 November 2021.


Planning is underway for 2022, which marks the 60th anniversary of Belfast Festival (see Festival Archive). We hope to share ambitious plans for an extended season in the near future, but for now please save the dates: 18 October – 6 November 2022.

The team are working remotely from our respective homes and can be reached by email. Stay safe, keep well and we look forward to welcoming you to #BIAF22
