Festival of Families

Tickets for the Festival of Families on Saturday 25th August 2018 

The Festival of Families is a free ticketed event. Every adult and child in attendance will require a ticket to access the venue. Tickets will be limited subject to venue capacity and availability. 

At the moment the tickets for the Festival of Families in Croke Park can only be accessed through Congress Registration. Due to a high demand of tickets, we will not be able to do a general release of single day free tickets for this event. 

Accessing Festival of Families tickets when booking for the Congress

Tickets for the Festival of Families have been available to the General Public for over a year for anyone booking for one or more days to attend the Pastoral Congress in the RDS. As availability has now reduced due to a great demand, tickets are now only available for people booking to attend three days of the Pastoral Congress in the RDS. 

Booking a three-day registration to the WMOF2018 Congress gives the possibility, at the same time, to book a free ticket to the Final Mass and for the Festival of Families at time of registration.

Click here to register for the Congress and access your tickets to the Festival of Families subject to availability.

Through each Diocese in Ireland

A limited allocation of tickets to the Festival of Families on Saturday 25th August 2018 will be made available through each diocese in Ireland for a family group from each parish to be able to be present at the event. This will be managed at a diocesan level directly. 

Through organisations working with marginalised families

Following Pope Francis’ encouragement to reach out to those who may be suffering in our society, a number of tickets will be allocated to organisations that work to support families experiencing challenges such as homelessness, addictions, displacement (refugees), among others.
