Take Part in London's
St. Patrick's Parade 
& Festival 

Key Information

Come and celebrate London’s St Patrick’s Day Festival on Sunday 17 March in Trafalgar Square from 12pm to 6pm. There’ll be the best of Irish arts, culture, food, music to enjoy, and more, including the spectacular annual parade.  

The Mayor’s annual shindig has become a highlight of London’s cultural calendar, as Londoners and visitors unite to celebrate the great contributions Irish people have made to the city.   

St Patrick’s Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the enduring strength of the relationship between the British and Irish people.

More than 50,000 people are expected to join the annual procession of Irish marching bands, dance troupes, and pageantry. The parade starts at Hyde Park Corner, and then travels through Piccadilly, St James’s Street, Pall Mall, Cockspur Street, and Whitehall. 

The action then moves to Trafalgar Square with a world-class line-up, in partnership with London Irish Centre. Expect family concerts, children’s films, and youth performances, as well as community choirs, schools, dance troupes, and a singalong finale.
