Spraoi Festival Parade

Waterford Spraoi International Street Arts Festival is a hidden gem. The annual three-day extravaganza offers over 250 free shows and music events performed by artists from around the world. Highlights include a festival parade with dramatic floats and hundreds of costumed performers, light, sound, music and special-effects weaving through the city’s medieval streets. The streets and squares of Ireland’s oldest city are transformed into an imaginative wonderland as the people of Waterford celebrate creativity with a three-day street party. Daily events commence at lunchtime and run late into the evening. Food stalls compliment the festival’s artistic menu and people from around the world join the people of Waterford at play.
