Established by the Government of Ireland in 1995, the St. Patrick's Festival has flourished into one of Ireland's most popular tourist destinations! With its vibrant celebration filled with music and dance, it is no wonder why so many travelers flock to this event from around the world every year.
This multi-day celebration, with festivities occurring on or around March 17th each year, stands to display a modern and creative side of Ireland - it coincides perfectly with their national holiday honoring Saint Patrick, commonly known as St. Patrick's Day. The main ambition of the St. Patrick's Festival in Dublin was to build a major annual international event that revolved around the national holiday so that the Irish could come together in pride and joy.
St. Patrick's Festival is back with a vibrant mix of live and online events, plus the iconic National St. Patrick's Day Parade taking over the streets of Dublin on March 17th! Get ready for an even bigger spectacle, with more pageants and marching bands to enjoy along the route. Don't miss out - be part of this exciting event!
Through a combination of modern and ancient Irish culture, art, and heritage practices, the Festival will bring together an expansive community of families, friends, and 80 million global citizens.
