About The Festival

4 nights | 5 venues | 33 comedians | 78 tons of comedy*  | 4,812 jokes**  | 1 large rubber contortion ring***

* We made this up, sure you can’t weigh comedy.  But if you could, and if it did weigh 78 tons, then that would be the equivalent to the weight of 19 elephants.  Fully grown.

** We made this up too. There’s WAY more jokes in the festival. Better jokes.

*** This is true, go see Lords of Strut. Oooh, squeaky.

JestFest returns to Wexford this May Bank Holiday weekend – it’s the comedy festival where you can see your favourite comedians doing their thing in intimate, atmospheric venues all over town.

Plenty of family events are taking place too with our Street Theatre Arena and Vintage Fairground on the Quay Front for the duration of the Festival.

The 2018 Festival takes place from Thursday 3rd May to Monday 7th May.

For place to stay, where to eat and lots more information. . .
