Experience The Avon during Kaleidoscope 2019

28th– 30th June 2019





A tantalizing festival world awaits family and friends, as Russborough House in Blessington swings open its gates for its first EVER festival on the 28th – 30th June. Kaleidoscope Festival will provide three days of high energy, full colour, multi–stage entertainment over 15 stages, designed to entice and enthrall all, from babes in arms to those eligible for a bus pass! 

Born out of Electric Picnic, Kaleidoscope will harness the magic of Picnic’s entertainment and family campsites, tailoring the overall festival experience to the desires of the festival-going family and bringing the essence of Electric Picnic to this brand new festival. Kaleidoscope heralds a new era of programming for the sophisticated taste of modern parents, discerning kids and all-knowing teens.

For the truly intrepid explorers, embark upon a family expedition here at The Avon where professionally managed adventure sports will be at your fingertips including zip lining, climbing and archery – only 6km away from the main festival site at Russborough. Take in the beautiful surroundings of the Poulaphouca Reservoir by water by kayak or look to the bottom of the lake and you might just catch a glimpse of the lost village which now lies beneath the water! Pack up your beloved bikes for the weekend and embark as a family on the Blessington Greenway from The Avon. The trail links the historic town of Blessington with Russborough House, it leads along the shores of the Blessington Lakes and through forest and natural woodland.  All activities at The Avon must be booked in advance and will include a shuttle bus transfer to and from the adventure. You can book your activities here but be quick as they are subject to availability!

We are thrilled to have the first ever Kaleidoscope on our doorstep this year and can’t wait to welcome all its visiting Families & Friends to experience The Avon and our legendary lakeshore activity centre! Lake Kayaking, Rowing Boats, Bike Hire, Climbing Walls, Archery, Pedal Go- Karts, Zipline plus extra Special Kaleidoscope Food Offers to fuel every hungry festival reveller are all on offer…so do Come On Over and Play At The A during Kaleidoscope 2019 – now let the exciting countdown begin!‘ Barry Kilroy, General Manager
