National St. Patrick’s Day Festival 2022: schedule announced

The program for the 2022 National St. Patrick’s Festival in Dublin has been unveiled and will be the largest and most ambitious yet.

‘Connection/Naisc’ is the theme of the spectacular global celebration of contemporary and traditional Irish arts, culture and heritage, as the Festival invites us to reconnect with families, friends and communities across Ireland, as well as with our global tribe.

St Patrick’s Festival 2022 (March 16-20) will be an historic celebration, the largest in scale and ambition to date, a time for the nation and for Irish people everywhere to connect and reflect, celebrate and welcome.
