March to the beat of a different drum in Limerick this St. Patrick's weekend at the 48th Annual Limerick International Band Championship, which attracts nearly 50,000 people every year.

At the heart of Limerick's 2018 St. Patrick's Festival will be the 48th Annual Limerick International Band Championship, which attracts nearly 50,000 people every year.

Some of the most bombastic marching bands of international renown will take to the streets, stepping in time - one two, one two - all the way from Pery Square to Arthur's Quay Park, where there will be a free concert for all attendees.

Gaze upon the incredible pipers, trumpeters and drummers, in uniforms with gleaming, polished buttons shining in the sun. They will have travelled from all over the world…last year’s winners came all the way from Illinois, in the USA.

There will be overall champions announced as well as prizes for the most nattily dressed, best youth band, and the best international band. Cheer on your own favourites as they step through the streets in unison.

Admission Free
