Celebrate St. Patricks Festival in the Capital!
It’s that time of year again, St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching and the team behind the St.Patrick’s Festival have lots lined up for us!
To celebrate St. Patricks Day 2018, St. Patrick’s Festival have set this years theme as HOME; The exploration of my home, your home, our home. The festival of over 30 events was launched by Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha recently.
The event programme which runs from March 15 – 19 is full of vibrancy and colour which includes a unique film commission project, street-theatre, talks, walks, Irish language, music and much more, all inspired by the theme. Lord Mayor, Mícheál Mac Donncha spoke at the launch inviting people to the Capital to celebrate the festival,
I invite Dubliners and people from all across the country to enjoy the events on offer, and for those who will be visiting from overseas I extend a céad míle fáilte.
Principal funders of the festival are Fáilte Ireland, Dublin City Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
Due to festivals and events being crucial elements to tourism in Ireland, Fáilte Ireland have provided significant funding to ensure this year’s festival is a bold and colorful showcase that attracts people to the Capital for the festival but also showcases Ireland as a tourist destination to global media. The idea of the theme ‘Home’ is to welcome visitors into our home to celebrate our national holiday.
Among this years highlights are the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and The Big Day Out along with many other events over the four days.
It promises to be fun for all the family! For the full programme of event check out StPatricksFestival.ie
