After a two year hiatus, Waterford City & County Council are delighted to welcome you back to the St. Patrick’s Day Festival in the City, including the Waterford St. Patrick’s Day parade on Thursday, March 17th!

The St. Patrick’s Day Festival will run for three fun-filled days from 17th – 19th March 2022 in Waterford City. To celebrate Waterford winning Ireland’s Best Place to Live, the St. Patrick’s Day Festival will celebrate all those things that make Waterford such a great place to be.

Waterford was recognised as the Best Place to Live for its warm & friendly welcome, sense of community and the feeling of togetherness that will make this year’s festival so special. 

We’ve long been recognised for our strong cultural scene and this year’s extended St. Patrick’s Day Festival will make for a fun filled and exciting weekend.

The city is easily accessible for families to enjoy the festivities. With an array of shopping & dining choices in the City, our St. Patrick’s Day Festival gives you an extra opportunity to experience what Waterford has to offer.

Full Festival and Parade details will be released soon.
