St. Patrick’s Festival 2015 celebrating Ireland’s national holiday will be held in Dublin from March 14 to March 17.
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 savoring the moment.
Amidst the colorful pageantry, bands from the USA, Mexico, Germany and Ireland will deliver uplifting scores and inspiring rhythms. This spectacular procession will wind its way through the heart of Dublin city, bursting with color and theatrics.
Highlights to look forward to include the return of the Festival’s hugely popular and distinguished cultural program, 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.
Last year’s Festival Parade theme, “Let’s Make History” drew on “the past” and was the first step on this exciting, creative journey. 2016 will explore “the future”, asking the question, “who do we aspire to be in the next 100 years?”, completing the three-year theme and narrative of “past, present and future”.
