Join a night of Mischief, Magic and Mayhem with the famous Macnas Halloween Parade

Macnas parade 2017

The world-famous Macnas parade returns to the streets of Galway kicking off in the Latin Quarter on Sunday, 29th of October 2017, at 5.30pm as giants and otherworldly performers descend on the city for a night of mischief and mayhem.

Macnas create interactive, unforgettable spectacular experiences staged in unexpected sites, across diverse landscapes. The work of Macnas is transformative, mobile and immersive collaborating with artists, audiences and communities nationally and internationally.

Over 40,000 people line the streets every year to be awed and amazed by this epic scale of storytelling, as Macnas unleashes creative chaos and invention.

This year’s concept is a variation on an iconic theme: The Irish Wake, devised by Parade Creative Director Orla Clogher.

Delivering this wondrous chaos are hundreds of performers from the Macnas Young Ensemble, Youth Ballet West, the Young Macnas Drummers, the community Macnas Ensemble, the Hit Machine and many more.
