Get your shamrocks on at Den Haag’s 2012 St. Patrick’s Day Festival of Music and Dance on Saturday 17 March 2012

Building on the great success of the last two year’s festivals, The Irish Club~Netherlands is delighted to launch the
2012 St. Patrick’s Festival in The Hague.

St. Patrick’s Day is the National Holiday of Ireland, and the festivities surrounding the day are a global phenomenon, with people organizing events and parties all over the world to celebrate Irish culture and heritage. In short, St Patrick’s Day is to the Irish what Queens Day is to the Dutch.

The festival will consist of a series of Irish music, song and dance and will be the biggest of its kind taking place in the Netherlands. Entrance is free and everyone is welcome.

On Saturday, the Grote Markt will be transformed into the
“ Groene Markt”, decorated in green and filled with stalls selling Irish-ware. The afternoon will have entertainment on the main outdoor stage, with a series of traditional Irish dancing and music acts between 12:00  and 18:30. Children will also be able to enjoy their own party and disco in the Supermarkt between 15:00 and 17:00.

The night event – the Festival Party – will also be held at the popular music venue, Supermarkt , in the Grote Markt with D.J. Jasper Weeda between 21:30 and 03:00.
