Our Mission

The Melbourne Irish Festival Committee is a not-for-profit organisation managed by a committee of volunteers. The St Patrick's Family Fun Day is only possible with the efforts of the volunteer committee, support from the Irish community, our Sponsors and the individuals who give up their time before, during and after the event.


Our aim is to continue to bring the tradition and history of the St. Patrick's Family Fun Day to the greater Community of Melbourne, by providing a well run and professionally organised event.


We want to create the opportunity to come together as a community and to celebrate our Irish culture, to reflect the true nature of a diverse and modern Irish Community and its contribution to the fabric of multicultural Australian Society today.  The festival is open to all and we aim to provide a safe, family friendly environment which welcomes all comers.
