The Parade, Kilkenny, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny,

Come along with all of the family to the Kilkenny St.Patrick’s Day Parade! Line the streets to show your support of local groups, be entertained by their costumes and performances as they parade the streets of the city!

At the heart of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Kilkenny is the annual parade, a community event involving community groups and organisations as well as clubs, schools and businesses from all over the county, and we thank them for their participation in the Parade every year.
For the 2019 parade, we have chosen the theme “Bring back the bees”. As everyone knows, bees are so important and need to be protected - if we look at the food in our fridge or on our table, bees have played their part either pollinating the many vegetables and fruits we eat directly, or pollinating the food for the animals that we then consume. This year for Lá le Padraig we want to celebrate the bee and the County Council have very aptly chosen the black and amber bumble bee as the County emblem, showing our commitment to the bees.

St. Patrick's Festivities in Kilkenny is extending an all-inclusive invitation to embrace and enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day Festivities in Kilkenny City, please join us with your friends and family and wear "black and amber" and line the streets of Kilkenny with "human bees"
St. Patrick's Festivities committee wish you and your families, both at home and across the world, a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
