Dúisigh Éire! | Awaken Ireland!

In lieu of a National Parade, the Festival presents a special pageantry performance responding to this year's theme Dúisigh Éire! | Awaken Ireland!

St. Patrick's Festival has created a pageant exploring the Festival's theme Dúisigh Éire! Awaken Ireland! Join us on a magical journey where the goddess Eiriu calls on her people from the present and the past to rise from our slumber and embrace a new dawn.

The Community Arts team at St Patrick's Festival have brought back our artists, costume designers, professional dancers, production crew and community groups to bring you a pageant like none before.

Artistic director Muirne Bloomer has imagined a magical world where Ireland awakens from the long sleep. Our native woodland animals frolic among the springtime flora and fauna and our mythical heroes call us in a rousing dance to embrace the bright new dawn.

From the whole creative team we hope you enjoy our pageant.
