St Patrick’s Weekend Festival 2021

York is going green! Our York Irish St. Patrick’s Weekend Festival takes place in a marquee in St. Sampson’s Square and is our biggest event of the year with live music, Irish dancing, ceilidhs, Irish food and drink, face painting, gaelic football demonstration and much more. 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.

Due to the ongoing restrictions, unfortunately the Festival has been cancelled for 2021. Instead this year, on St. Patrick’s Day, Wednesday 17th March, we will be hosting a mixture of live and pre recorded music and Irish dancing performances on our social media pages. In the run up to the day we are also hosting an art competition for primary school age children. Details for that are here:
