Festival Launch 2015

It’s official, the programme for St. Patrick’s Festival 2015 is now live - four days of exceptional city-wide events to celebrate Ireland’s national holiday!

On Tuesday our programme for 2015 was officially launched in the stunning surroundings of the Dining Hall at Trinity College Dublin by our CEO Susan Kirby, Chairperson Judith Woodward, Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke, and Minister of State Michael Ring, TD.

The theme of the parade this year ‘Celebrate Now’ will see leading street theatre and pageant companies draw inspiration for their artistic creations from Ireland’s present, embracing ‘nowness’ and savouring the moment.

Highlights to look forward to include the return of the Festival’s hugely popular and distinguished cultural programme, ‘I Love My City’, the Festival Treasure Hunt in association with Ethiopian Airlines, Céilí House Live presented by RTÉ Radio 1, the Festival Big Day Out in Merrion Square, and of course the Parade which will feature pageants, bands and music from around the world!
