St Patrick's Day Parade


πŸ¦‹ St Patrick's Day Spring Carnival Parade​



North West Carnival Initiative presents

St Patrick’s Day  Spring Carnival Parade

Rebirth & Renewal

Tuesday 17th March

πŸ“ Departs Bishop Street 2pm

Famed for their fantastical and flamboyant carnival parades, the North West Carnival Initiative has stepped into Rebirth and Renewal for this year’s Spring Carnival parade.

Formed from nine blossoms

Nine buds of plant and tree

A goddess of spring and dawn

Heralds growth, rebirth and renewal

And the darkness all but gone


Boldeuwedd, Brigid, Sita and Rafu-Sen too

All spring deities that bring life and renew

Come rejoice and join the carnival

And dance like daffodils in the sun

Plant a seed for spring has surely sprung.


🎭   The North West Carnival Initiative works alongside Greater Shantallow Community Arts and In Your Space to engage with over 600 participants from local schools, youth clubs and arts and cultural organisations in helping to create this highlight event of the weekend.

NWCI is supported by Derry City and Strabane District Council & Arts Council of Northern Ireland
