St. Patrick’s Day Festival Berlin

By Brendan Power . March 10, 2015


This Sunday March 15th, get your green asses down to a lovely little corner of Kreuzberg, Jockel Biergarten, which for one day only, will be transformed into a little German corner of Ireland, as the 5th St. Patrick’s Day Berlin Festival gets underway.  As always, the main aim of the festival is to celebrate both Irish culture in Germany, and the special friendship of modern day Germans and Irish, just don’t make any jokes about the bank bailout, we’ve been there and done that already.

Finally once the concert is over, the after party begins with the very talented Irish DJs from Kleine Reise doing their thing  long into the night.  This promises to be a great fun day and evening for all the family, whether you’re from Germany or Guatemala, everyone is Irish on St. Paddy’s day!
