Revaler Str. 99 (corner Warschauer Str. x Revaler Str.), 10245 Berlin-Friedrichshain, Berlin, German
### UPDATED WITH FULL RUNNING ORDER ###
Dear friends of St. Patrick’s Festival Berlin,
We are delighted to announce that SPFB is officially BACK WITH A BANG on Saturday, March 17th, 2018!!! #patisback
We have joined forces with Urban Spree on the old RAW Grounds in Friedrichshain to host our special day. The festival site will also be fully equipped with delicious Irish food stalls, Irish coffee & Baileys cappuccino from the Rolling Barista, and this all would not have been possible but for the support we received from Guinness and Bushmills Irish Whiskey. Food vendors include our Kreuzberg friends Hellogoodpie, who will be serving a selection of delicious Irish stews (Beef & Guinness & vegan) and bacon sandwiches. They will be joined by Crazy Bastard Sauce offering potato cakes with hot sauce and curry-cheese chips (vegan).
We didn't receive permission for the parade this year, but not to worry! We'll open the gates at Urban Spree from 13:00 so rugby fans will be able to watch the first of 3 live games in the NatWest 6 Nations Championship on big screens in the gallery.
Gallery running order:
13:30 Italy vs Scotland
15:45 England vs Ireland
18:00 Wales vs France
22:00 St. Patrick's Festival Berlin — AfterParty 2018
While the rugby entertains revellers inside, we have a packed schedule of activities in the garden. Our friends at Setanta Berlin GAA are building a GAA section showcasing the very best of Gaelic football and hurling. There will be lots of activities in the Kids Tent, such as arts and crafts, face-painting and a photo booth. They will also be serving delicious cakes and scones!
There is a cracking line-up of diverse, Berlin-based Irish musicians and performers for the FREE concert in the garden. The opening ceremony will include a welcoming note from Irish Ambassador to Germany Mr. Michael Collins (Embassy of Ireland Berlin) and members of the The Berlin Pipe Company will be on hand to treat us to a traditional bagpipe performance to start the ceremony. St. Patrick himself is also due to make an appearance!
Garden running order:
14:00 4 Minute Mile
15:00 Opening ceremony
16:00 Slí na Sláinte
17:30 Joey Ryan & band
20:00 Sean Og & David Flowerkraut
21:00 Closing ceremony
We are also very pleased that members of Berlin-Ireland Pro Choice Solidarity will be joining us to raise awareness about the upcoming abortion referendum in Ireland and to promote the #hometovote campaign.
Tickets are available for St. Patrick's Festival Berlin — AfterParty 2018 featuring a traditional Céilí Mór Irish dance followed by renowned Irish DJs follows on from the concert and will keep revellers moving until the wee hours :-)
