Belfast St Patrick's Day Parade Live Stream City Hall

World Events, March , Belfast St Patrick's Day Parade
 

Event Information:

 

Belfast St Patrick's Day celebrations will offer a colourful carnival atmosphere for all the family to enjoy. The day will kick off with a spectacular carnival parade, led by the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Pat Convery, which will leave City Hall at 12 noon.

The first Saint Patrick's Festival was held on 17 March 1996. In 1997, it became a three-day event, and by 2000 it was a four-day event. By 2006, the festival was five days long; more than 675,000 people attended the 2009 parade. Overall 2009's five day festival saw close to 1 million visitors, who took part in festivities that included concerts, outdoor theatre performances, and fireworks.

The topic of the 2004 St. Patrick's Symposium was "Talking Irish," during which the nature of Irish identity, economic success, and the future were discussed. Since 1996, there has been a greater emphasis on celebrating and projecting a fluid and inclusive notion of "Irishness" rather than an identity based around traditional religious or ethnic allegiance. The week around Saint Patrick's Day usually involves Irish language speakers using more Irish during seachtain na Gaeilge ("Irish Week").

As well as Dublin and Belfast, many other cities, towns, and villages in Ireland hold their own parades and festivals, including Cork, Belfast, Derry, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick, and Waterford.
