Carnival Parade Derry
St Patrick’s Spring Carnival Parade
Friday 17th March
Departs Queens Quay (Council Car Park)
On this the feast of Patrick,
As Niamh returns for Oisin
From the land of Tir Na nOg
She sings a spell of youth
Upon all young and old
“May you dance in celebration
May you feast on foods of love
May you cherish all the nations,
Under this great big sky above
And may you stay Forever Young”
Community, arts and performance groups from across the city and beyond come together in a wonder-filled street celebration of youthfulness of mind and spirit!
Join us to cheer on the procession as it makes its way through the city centre.
