Support St. Patrick's Festival

At St. Patrick’s Festival we are dedicated to showcasing the best possible representation of Ireland and Irishness on the streets of Dublin every March.

As a global community of more than 80 million people, we take immense pride in our sense of ‘Irishness’ - of the culture and shared heritage that makes us unique. St. Patrick’s Festival is our way of celebrating that sense of Irishness, and an invitation to people all over the world to join us in those celebrations.

Whether you donate €2, or €200 to St. Patrick’s Festival, you are supporting creativity, artistic participation and bringing communities together around Dublin, and Ireland.

Be Part of It!

We don’t just celebrate and showcase the best of who we are and what we do on March 17th – throughout the year, we support and invest in the diverse range of people and communities that create and sustain this rich tapestry.

Through our St. Patrick's Festival Community Arts Projects in the National Parade on St. Patrick’s Day, and through our programme of events in Festival Quarter and citywide, we are investing in creativity and bringing communities together all across Ireland.

Donate To Create is a new initiative inviting everyone to fund our St. Patrick's Festival Community Arts Projects. All of the funds raised this year after costs will go directly to our St. Patrick's Festival Community Arts Projects and to the production of this year’s Community Arts Pageant for our national parade.

The funding will be spread over a huge range of activities – everything from pageant-making, costume design and choreography, to rehearsal spaces, transport, hospitality and the performers at the parade. Your support can help us to grow, to foster creativity in every corner of our island and to shine a light on the absolute best of us.
