St Patrick's Festival Parade

Join presenters Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh, Aidan Power and Des Cahill on the streets of Dublin, as the parade rolls through the heart of the capital for St Patrick's Day.

The 2016 parade theme, Imagine If, has been inspired by the imagination of the youth of Ireland as they look to the future, the next 100 years. Ireland's leading pageant companies will bring their vibrant interpretations of the theme to life with spectacular pageantry and colourful performances. Amidst the colourful displays 14 musical bands from Ireland and all over the world will deliver uplifting scores and inspiring rhythms.
