BrigidFest – Féile Bríde – is an annual celebration of Brigid and Irish women which has been held in Melbourne since 2004.
What BrigidFest Means to Me
Together with family and friends, I have attended the BrigidFest since its inauguration in 2004 at the Celtic Club. We look forward to gathering every February, around the Feast of St Brigid, to share a meal, meet new people, and listen to speakers on fascinating Irish and Irish-Australian topics. The day has now become a tradition, giving us the opportunity to celebrate our connection with Ireland and her women. Every BrigidFest has been a joy to attend and an event to remember.
