***Unfortunately this event due to take place at 11am has been cancelled***
The band’s instruments were lost in transit on their journey to Ireland. We hope that they arrive soon and they can enjoy the rest of their time here!
On Tuesday the 14th of March the Burlington Teen Tour Band will perform in Kilkenny Castle Park at 11am. Burlington are one of the oldest and largest youth marching bands in Canada. This year’s St. Patrick’s Festival will be their third visit to Ireland. Take a break and come out to the Castle Park to support our visitors and enjoy this performance in front of the magnificent Kilkenny Castle.
