Event:
Celebrate St Paddy's
Edinburgh Gardens is the place to be this Sunday before the official St Patrick's Day, or 'St Paddy's' according to your fellow Aussies.

Starting at noon the popular garden space will come alive with the very merry sounds of live music and dancing. Get amongst the Irish and immerse yourself in the culture which 'Cead mile fáilte roimh' or 'A hundred thousand welcomes'.

Think folk music, violins, Irish orchestra sessions, pipers, set dancing and traditional Irish dancing competitions.

Irish culture is not all about Guinness, sample some Irish heritage & culture and celebrate its place and contribution to Australian society and multicultural Melbourne.

The event will run until 5pm. It's a family fun day open to all. The park is equipped with useful facilities such as public toilets, two playgrounds, barbecue, sheltered areas and picnic tables, so why not bring your lunch and have a picnic! There is a dog off leash area as everyone agrees dogs are part of the family.

There is some off street parking, although getting a park can sometimes be challenging in North Fitzroy. The good news is the gardens are very accessible via public transport.

How to Get to the Melbourne Irish Festival

From Flinders Street Railway Station/Flinders St, walk to stop 6-(Melbourne Town Hall/Collins St) and get the route 11 tram to stop 21 (Alfred Cres/St Georges Rd). From here it is about a 500 metre walk to the Edinburgh Gardens.
