Festival Fun

Crowds gathering in Armagh city centre are entertained by a full programme of live music by renowned Irish bands. The music pauses while the procession passes so everyone can enjoy the spectacular display of colour, music, dance and entertainment. Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations continue with a family fun afternoon in the Shambles Yard, located opposite the striking twin-spired Saint Patrick’s RC Cathedral. A variety of free, themed children’s workshops allow creativity to flow and the whole family are entertained by the local talent on the community stage, a showcase of the diverse cultures and communities of Armagh.
