St. Patrick's Day Festival Berlin

Kreuzberg hosts the annual St. Patrick's Day Festival and Parade, it was started by a small group of Ireland fans and Irish expats in 2011. The first parade took place around Görlitzer Park. But, since then it has turned into quite a procession. About 5,000 people march through the streets of Berlin dressed in green, accompanied by bagpipes and other Irish music. The parade ends with a large outdoor free concert. The St.Patrick's Festival in Kreuzberg also features film screenings, performances, sports events, whiskey tastings, workshops, traditional Irish dances, and literary readings.
