Kilkenomics 2023

November 2nd- 5th 2023.

Kilkenomics is the largest economics festival in the world. Over the past decade or so we’ve been bringing people together, in cosy environments in Kilkenny City to listen to and exchange ideas; and crucially have the craic. See you in November, 2023!

Kilkenomics, the world’s first economics and comedy festival, brings together some of the world’s leading economists, including the odd Nobel prize winner, financial analysts and media commentators with some of our funniest, sharpest stand-up comedians.

See our fantastic programme and lineup from 2022 below. Make sure to sign up to our newsletter to stay in the loop for next year’s festival.
