On the 13th March this year the parade committee unanimously decided to cancel the parade due to the pandemic we are currently experiencing. Thank you all for your support and understanding then and since.
We would like to extend our gratitude to those who put in the effort to participate or volunteer in the parade. We know a lot of you were very keen and ready to fly the flag on the 14th but we’ll be back next year, bigger and greener in 2021.
Lastly, the committee would like to extend our thoughts and wishes to those being effected by this pandemic. These are unprecedented times and with no clear end in sight, it is imperative we follow the advice of the National Cabinet seriously so we can get through it together.

Take care of yourselves, and each other
2020 Brisbane Irish Festival Events
Well done to all other festival event organisers. Sadly, Paddyfest and The Irish Choir performances followed the same fate as the parade but the 2020 Brisbane Irish Festival was still a success. The IASAQ had their biggest ball yet at Victoria Park Golf Course, The Gaelic Park Family Day in Willawong was a success as well as the St. Patrick’s Eve Dinner and St. Patrick’s Day Mass. All were well attended, successful events and we commend the organisers for their efforts during these difficult times.
