St Patrick’s Festival

Dublin, Thursday 14th March - Monday 18th March 2019

The 2019 National St Patrick's Festival celebrates Ireland's rich heritage of Storytelling in a spectacular five-day programme showcasing the very best of traditional and contemporary Irish storytelling. The Festival will feature a host of fun-filled family experiences, breathtaking large scale events, diverse and challenging newly commissioned performances, a myriad of musical treats, the magnificent National St Patrick's Day Parade and new for 2019, a three-day Festival Village at Merrion Square, Dublin.

St Patrick's Festival is the biggest celebration of a National identity in the world. Ireland has a deep-rooted tradition of storytelling, reaching back over thousands of years. From spellbinding Irish myths, to defining moments in our history with our heroes and villains, to our classic and contemporary stories, the tales are vibrant and dynamic. Through them, life's rich stories are passed from generation to generation. Using spoken word, music, visual art, literature, film, theatre, street performance and circus, this year the festival will celebrate our world-renowned connection with Storytelling and bring to life ancient tales and contemporary narratives.

St Patrick's Festival is made possible through the continued support of Fáilte Ireland and Dublin City Council.
