St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny 2022 – what a festival it was! We had our biggest festival yet (6 days!), welcomed over 100,000 people to the city and hosted one of the biggest Marching Bands in the US.

During the week of festivities, we welcomed people from all over the world, including delegations from our Twinned Towns of Kilkenny, Minnesota, Malbork, Poland, More-Loing-et-Orvanne, France, and Formigine, Italy. In the Parade and on the Festival Bandstand we showed off our talented local musicians and creative local community. And with the weather on our side, Kilkenny’s medieval city was basked in sunshine all week. We had an absolute ball!

Thank you to everyone who visited and contributed. We can’t wait to welcome you all back again next year!

St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny 2023 will take place from the the 15th – 19th of March 2023. We’re busy planning another spectacular event for you to enjoy. Join us in Kilkenny, Ireland for our big festival in a
