News from Sydney St Patrick's Day 

Our aim, as always is to organise a St. Patrick’s Day celebration that appeals to all ages of the Irish Australian community. To give you an idea of what we have planned for St. Patrick’s Weekend, here is an overview of the days’ activities plus our schedule of events. 

The Opera House Goes Green

The Sydney St. Patrick's Day Organisation, in partnership with Tourism Ireland is turning the iconic Sydney Opera House green on St Patrick's Day. This is a welcomed return for the Sydney Opera House having last been lit up in 2014 under this initiative.

Now in its ninth year, Sydney joins a host of other international cities to take part in the 'Global Greening'. The iconic Sydney Opera House will join other Australian sites getting in on the action, including the Big Kangaroo Border Village, Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney Town Hall, The Bell Tower, Council House and Elizabeth Quay in Perth and QPAC in Brisbane.

Among this year's global landmarks to turn green are the iconic fountains in London's Trafalgar Square, the Colosseum in Rome, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Sky Tower in Auckland, Niagara Falls and the London Eye. 

The Green Quarter

The Sydney celebration traditionally takes place on a Sunday and this year will be no different with the festivities taking place in the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park on Sunday 18th March. There will be a variety of music on the big stage from 12pm, a children's parade and play area with bouncing castles and face painting galore, Irish dancers and marching bands displaying the very best in local talent. With lots of amazing food and drink stalls to keep attendees refreshed during the day. Make plans to get there early, grab a great vantage point and enjoy the best celebration in the country.
