The St Patrick’s Day committee would like to urge all organisations across the city and county to get involved in the annual St. Patricks Day Parade, taking place in Kilkenny on Saturday 17th March at 1pm, in what is always a fantastic family orientated community event to celebrate our Irishness.

The theme for the 2018 parade is ‘Kilkenny through the Ages’ – there are so many interesting aspects to Kilkenny city and County. From its rich history to its industrial successes and its sporting prowess – draw inspiration for your float from a myriad of events and people that made Kilkenny what it is.

There are four categories for prize winners which will be announced on the festival stage at 4.30pm, followed by a special award ceremony with the Mayor of Kilkenny, in the Town Hall later in the month.

(1) Most Creative & Entertaining. (2) Best Young People (3) Best Rural and (4) Best School.
