It’s that time of the year again when we’re blessed with seas of green for the annual St Patrick’s Day festivities. This Saturday, March 11, the Brisbane Irish Festival Parade will take to the streets in Brisbane City. Then in true after-party fashion, Brisbane’s number one Irish pub, Finn McCool’s is set to take over Brunswick Street Mall in the Valley for a grand street festival to celebrate our mates from Ireland (with plenty of Guinness of course).
The free events kick off at 10am on Saturday, March 11 and the following Friday, March 17 for St Patrick’s Day.
It’s set to be a huge day of pints, pop-up bars, as well as live entertainment across two stages: from traditional Irish dancers to bagpipe bands, including The Gathering, Tartan Shamrock, Limerick, and more.
The celebrations will take place at both Brunswick Street Mall and inside the Irish pub itself on Brunswick Street, so you can get the best of both worlds.
In terms of food, tuck into heartwarming Irish favourites such as beef and Guinness Pie, fish and chips, Sunday roast, or True Irish Stew.
So come down and get into the Irish spirit with the best St Paddy’s Day celebrations in town.
Also, be sure to check out Story Bridge as it lights up emerald from March 11 – 17.
