The St. Brigid's Day / Lá Fheíle Bríde Vancouver Festival Vancouver started in 2020 through an initiative by the BC Irish Benevolent fund.
This one day event that brought together an incredible line-up of speakers, workshop hosts, storytellers, exhibits and music, and was an incredible success. The keynote speaker included Dr. Angela Byrne, former Historian-in-Residence at the EPIC Museum in Dublin.
