From March 16 to 18, 2019 the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris invites you to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day as it should be with a series of events promoting the Irish gastronomy, music and culture. This Christian celebration traditionally celebrated on March 17 is a genuine moment of sharing and friendship that could be summed up in three words: beer, music and dance. Even though, this year, we could add the word “parade”.
As a matter of fact, on Sunday March 17, 2019 brace yourself because it will be all-things green in Paris! For the second year in a row, Irish in France and the Centre Culturel Irlandais invite you to a grand and free parade open to all, alongside the members of the Irish community in Paris.
The parade will leave the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris 5th arrondissement at 1 p.m. before walking around the Panthéon, by the Université de la Sorbonne, then turning right to rue Descartes. Then, it will storm the rue Mouffetard before returning to the CCI.
To fully experience this very nice event, don’t hesitate to dress in green to paint Paris with the colors of Ireland.
If you want to enjoy the Saint Patrick’s Day festivities before the parade, meet at 12 p.m. to grab a bite and attend farcical shows including one by comic and juggler Mr H. Moreover, you can taste the best of Irish gastronomy thanks to Green Goose pub.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all! Beannachtaí na Féile Padraig Ort!
