The annual St Patrick's Parade celebration sets off from City Hall at noon. In addition to the overall Patrick theme (and this year we have a younger Patrick from his pig & sheep herder time, as well as the older, saintly Patrick) there is a BELFAST theme.
Celebrate Belfast’s St Patrick’s Day by being a part of our vibrant, creative and edgy carnival parade. Come along and see ‘Giant’ St Patrick as he drives the legendary snake out of the city. Join with the colourful floats, performers and music as people of all ages, from all parts of the city mark St Patrick’s Day with a spectacular parade for everyone.
In 2013, our carnival parade was a highlight of Culture Night Belfast, as we brought you the final performance of international hip-hop carnival project, Urban Ballet. Performances had already taken place in Portugal, France and South Africa.
