Updated: St Patrick's Day Festival Budapest, 16 March
Join us on March 16th on Szabadság tér from 14:00 and participate in St Patrick’s Day parade. Since 2011 the event has been growing and attracting more and more followers. It is a great family day and last year, despite the cold weather, we had over 1400 people join the fun.

Turn Budapest green and be Irish for the day!

The parade moves from its opening at Szabadság tér and will finish at INSTANT (1065 Budapest, Nagymező u. 38) where there will be 12-15 bands playing Irish and Irish inspired music, including the well-known band FIRKIN. Other bands will play in various rooms and generate an "Irish Session" feeling. People are encouraged to join with their own musical instruments if they like.

We will also have Irish dancing and dance teaching for those brave (or drunk) enough to try. DJ Mezzo will finish off our party with remixed Irish music late into the night.

For the kids, we will have a children's room as well.

We have Irish people, food, music and Guinness to help us get into the spirit of being Irish!

Be sure to purchase T-Shirts for the event which will be available at Jack Doyle's and Caledonia beginning March 4th!

Date( and time: - 16/03/2014 - 17/03/2014 - 2:00 pm - 2:00 am


There will be many bands performing acoustic in the smaller rooms, special performances by special guest (FIRKIN) in the basement and a DJ mixing up Irish themed dance tunes into the night.

Firkin tickets available at INSTANT for 1500 Ft - limited number (250) only!
