St Kilda has its own Irish St Patrick’s Day Festival this year. This event is the first of its kind and will be held at O’Donnell Gardens, St Kilda. Kicking off at 2pm, the day will be brought to life with live cultural music, traditional Irish dancing, food and activities designed to give everyone a little taste of Ireland. This is an over 18s event but there is a free family festival earlier in the day, between 10am and 1 pm. There is an admission fee for the later event.
