Now in its 5th year, St. Patrick's Festival, St. Kilda, is back on 16th and 17th March 2024!

The St. Patrick's live music festival is about bringing everyone together to celebrate Irish culture and heritage in the South East suburbs of Melbourne.

Since 2019, St. Patrick's Festival, St. Kilda has been growing. The biggest feedback from attendees was that they wished the Family Event had its own event. So, we listened and in 2024 the event has two parts to enable the event to cater for families with fun-filled activities for children: carnival rides, roving entertainers, Irish dancers, live music and a parade, with a separate, ticketed event for a headline artist and local Victorian acts.
