St Patrick Is Back… And It’s About Time!

Fermanagh's St Patrick’s Day Parade and Fun Day finally returns to Enniskillen on Friday 17th March and this year's theme is Back To The Future!

The craic starts at the Broadmeadow with a free family fun day and a host of live entertainment acts starting at 1.30pm, presented by the hugely popular DJ Bob. Enjoy a range of free activities from soccer skills to water based taster sessions, balloon modelling to bouncy castles, mingle with dinosaurs and disney heroes and get snapped with some of the silver screen’s most famous vehicles. We’ve got face-painting & glitter tattoos and free tasty treats with chocolate fountains sponsored by GT Exhausts and candy floss supplied courtesy of Balcas

We’re delighted that our wakeboarding leprechauns are back, and we’ve expanded our water activities - making celebrating St Patrick’s Day in Ireland’s Only Island Town, a truly unique experience.

For those wishing to grab prime pole position there will be lots of fun, pre parade on the Diamond in Enniskillen town centre with a live performance from the Hand Me Downs at 2.15pm as well as traditional dancers and walkabout characters to keep you entertained. And those who would prefer a less boisterous viewing platform; Fr Raymond Donnelly is providing again this year, a ‘Quiet Space’ in St Michael’s Parish Centre – booking essential. You can always take time out too, to view the entries to our children’s art competition in the Legion while enjoying traditional music and dancing performances.

Supported by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Experience Enniskillen and local businesses, this year’s spectacular parade will have been worth waiting for! Led off at 3.30pm by 2023 Grand Marshalls; OMG Foundation, the parade features a range of traditional and carnival style floats, vintage & futuristic vehicles, acrobatics, live music as well as the most amazing opportunity to meet T-rex the interactive dinosaur and his baby, Rex plus much, much more.

As it’s been a few years there will be loads of giveaways on the day that will help everyone enjoy our return, whatever the weather.
