St Patrick's Festival Birmingham 2022

It's back!

St. Patrick’s Festival Birmingham have announced that the annual celebration of Birmingham’s Irish community is back.

Due to works along the usual parade route, this year’s St Patricks Festival is not going ahead as previous years and instead there will be a calendar of exciting events spotlighting Birmingham’s Irish community across Digbeth.

 

The focal point of this year’s festival on the 13th March will be the annual St Pat Rock’s stage in the heart of Digbeth at the Zellig and the Custard Factory. Previously featuring the likes of Finbar Furey and Sharon Shannon, this year international headliners alongside well-loved and emerging local bands will return to the stage. Foodies will also be catered for, with a host of the best of Birmingham street food.

 

Kicking the festival off on Friday 11th March will be the festival’s hotly-anticipated Launch Night (an evening of ceol agus craic, accompanied by a fantastic 3-course meal), the Festival week will include live music gigs, concerts and traditional Irish sessions, as well as whiskey and beer tasting, history talks and storytelling evenings, alongside special events involving Irish dance and sport, warming you up for the main event.

This year will also see a return of the Festival’s ‘In Memoriam Project’, debuted as part of 2021’s virtual event, paying tribute to members of the Irish community that have been lost in the past year.

After a two-year hiatus, St Pat’s Fest looks forward to welcoming our Irish community, both in Birmingham and further afield, along with our friends across the city, to enjoy a well-deserved celebration of what it means to be Brummie, and how it feels to be Irish.
