The Brisbane Irish Festival is a long-standing annual event that promotes and celebrates the occasion of St Patrick’s Day, Irish culture and its contribution to the state of Queensland. The St Patrick’s Day Parade has been held amidst the streets of Brisbane city since 1989, flooding the inner-city district with a colourful convoy of more than 80 floats and displays representing Irish culture that provide free community-oriented entertainment for all ages.
