St Patrick’s Weekend Festival 2017

York is Going Green! Now in its third year our York Irish St. Patrick’s Weekend Festival is our biggest event of the year. Just like the previous festivals, the celebrations will take place in a marquee in St. Sampson’s Square in the city centre all the way from 5.00pm on Friday 17th March until 10.30pm on Saturday 18th March. 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. There will be live music, Irish dancing, ceilidhs, Irish food and drink, face painting and much more. Here is the timetable:
