The theme of this year's Festival is Connections/Naisc.

St Patricks Day 2022

Through contemporary and traditional Irish arts, culture and heritage, the Festival will connect families, friends and communities across Ireland, and our global tribe of 80 million.  

The iconic National St. Patrick’s Day Parade returns to the streets of Dublin on March 17, with more pageants, more marching bands and more participants than ever before!  

And new for 2022 is Festival Quarter at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Dublin 7 which will be home to a magical day-to-night urban Festival for all, from March 16 to 20 on the grounds of one of Ireland’s most spectacular and historic heritage sites, in the heart of Dublin. Festival Quarter will also host the Irish Food & Craft Village, a daily showcase of Ireland’s incredible food and beverage produce, arts and crafts and a space for all to relax and connect.  

The wellness event Breathe Festival, presented by Happenings and St. Patrick’s Festival, will take place on the grounds of The Law Society of Ireland in Dublin 7 on March 18 and 19, while City Funfairs return to Custom House Quay from March 17th to 20th.  

SPF TV, the Festival’s virtual TV station on the website will offer front row seats to live performances and recorded programmes from March 16 to 20 for those who cannot attend in person.
