York Irish St. Patrick Weekend Festival 2018


The York Irish Association proudly presents its annual York Irish St. Patrick's Weekend Festival. Now in its fourth year, celebrations will take place in a marquee in St. Sampson's Square in the city centre. The activities are all about celebrating and continuing to bring an understanding of Irish tradition and culture to York, bringing fun and enjoyment to the city for people of all ages who have an interest in Irish culture and celebrating the unique connections between York and Ireland.

Taking place on the Friday evening and all day/evening on the Saturday (St.Patrick's day itself) the festival will include music performances from the likes of Roisin Ban and the Flying Donkeys, Irish Dancing performances from the O’Connor Academy of Irish Dance and St.Aelred’s School of Irish Dance, and a celidh with Fiddler’s Wreck. There will also be Irish food and drink served and face-painting throughout the weekend. Everyone is welcome and it’s free to attend!
