The principal aim of the St. Patrick’s Festival, since its inauguration, is to develop a major annual international festival around the national holiday over which the ‘owners’ of the festival – the Irish people – would stand proud. It sets out to reflect the talents and achievements of Irish people on many national and world stages, and it acts as an exciting showcase for the manifold skills of the people of Ireland, of every age and social background.
The St. Patrick’s Day Street Festival in Singapore is an exciting event not to be missed – a time of the year when people around the world dress up in green, and celebrate the rich culture, arts, community and all things fun and Irish! Having grown every year since the first Parade in 2006, the St. Patrick’s Day Street Festival promises to be a true illustration of Singapore’s multi-cultural foundation.
Soak up the festive atmosphere of all things Irish, and come partake in the celebrations. So mark your calendars and go get your something green to wear for this coming St. Patrick’s Day!
