Are You Ready For The Knock Youth Festival?

Posted on 17. Jul, 2012

It’s almost time. We’re nearly there. At the end of this month the Knock Youth Festival is kicking off. The Festival is for all people between the ages of 17-30. It is a chance to come away and experience something amazing. Hundreds of young people will gather together on the 28th of July for a day with a difference. Drumming, Gymnastics, Elation Ministries,Trocaire, Magis, inspiring speakers, practical workshops, celebration of the Eucharist, chill out time, a chance to meet new people. The festival is FREE, all you have to pay for is your food. The day will begin at 12:00 and finish at 6:00pm. There are some buses coming from around the country. For more information click here.

Last years event saw over 600 people coming together, this is what they said….

‘The atmosphere in the chill out marquee was relaxed and welcoming. The weekend overall was one to be remembered’.

“It was great!! Countin down till next year already!!” says one festival goer.

“I had a brilliant time at the Youth festival. I will definitely be back again next year” said another.


In the run up to the Festival young people from the dioceses of Clogher, Raphoe, Kilmore, Elphin and Achonory will take part in a pilgrim relay. Young people will begin their walk in Lough Derg and walk to Knock Shrine, starting on the 22nd July. This walk will be organised by the different dioceses.


While your in the West, why not climb Croagh Patrick on ‘Reek Sunday’ Sunday the 29th of July. It is an amazing experience to climb the Holy Mountain with thousands of other pilgrims that will make the climb that day.
