St Patricks Day Kicks off Festival season 2020!


Girls having fun for St. Patricks Day

The festivities of St Patrick’s Day signifies the beginning of the festival season in Ireland. The Irish love nothing more than to shake off the winter blues with huge St Patrick’s day festivals, events and parades in all our cities, towns and villages.

Tourism Ireland aims to grow visitor numbers to over 12m by 2020 and a key area of focus is growing festivals, in particular St Patrick’s Festival, Galway 2020, TradFest, Puca, Taste the Island and Wexford Opera. This year they are also developing a campaign around “Green Tuesday” akin to Black Friday to encourage businesses to develop offerings around St Patricks day.

Pub dressed up for St. Patricks DayParades can sometimes be covered by the local authority but many towns run their own via community groups or Chambers of Commerce. At Event Insure we can cover all types of St Patricks events. Our Events Team have the experience and knowledge to guide you with advice around running and insuring your event, and the unique situations that events can sometimes pose.

As soon as the Patrick’s Day festivities have been wrapped up the attention swiftly switches to the summer festival programme. From village fairs to music festivals people will be spoilt for choice and there will not be a free weekend in sight for months with all the excellent events taking place. If you are seeking insurance for your event, give our team a call and we will set you on the path to peace of mind, so you concentrate on organising your event.

So whether it’s a Patricks Day Parade float or the organisation of a music festival, we would be delighted to speak with you. The team at Event Insure would like to take this opportunity to wish all event organisers and committees the very best of luck in the organisation of their events for 2020.
