What's On

  • Free Family Event

    10.00am - 1.00pm

    This part of the festival is organised by a not for profit organisation and made up of a dedicated volunteer committee.

    This part of the event is to bring families together to celebrate Irish culture and heritage in the South East suburbs. We thank all our sponsors that have provided support in order to put this morning event together. The morning will be filled with children's activities from carnival rides, roving entertainers, Irish dancers and live music and allowing the parents to have a cold fresh Guinness to enjoy in an allocated area.


  • Ticketed Event

    2.00pm - 9.00pm

    This will be our third event due to the second being canceled due to the pandemic. The event will be bigger and better than the first!

    The ticketed event is strictly over 18, the event will include live local acts on stage from 2pm. Let's celebrate Irish culture, let it be a day that we leave our worries at the gate and come in and enjoy a fun day with your mates. There will be games & roving entertainment throughout the park, and turn up hungry as we have more food venders on site and beer tents.
