Children and young people got dressed up to take part in the carnival parade along with circus performers and street artists.
The theme of this year's Féile parade is Giants of the North, and Cú Chulainn was just one of the well-known faces from Irish mythology who made an appearance.
Féile an Phobail means festival of the people, and director Kevin Gamble said the event is always diverse, with people from various countries who have made west Belfast their home turning out to take part.
"We want to put on a showcase of the culture, the tradition, the love for the Irish language, the love for the arts within Belfast and west Belfast," he explained.
"This year we've tried our best to make sure a lot of the festival events are centred in and around the Gaeltacht quarter."
Those taking part in the event competed to win prizes for best dressed group, newcomer, float and individual.
Kids from Whiterock Children's Centre put in a special effort and Deirdre Walsh said the group looks forward to the Féile every year.
"We absolutely adore this. All the costumes, everything, is made in house. It's a really big event for us," she told UTV.
Local MP Paul Maskey welcomed the Féile, which he said is now one of the biggest festivals in Ireland.
"People come from all over the world to it and people enjoy it.
"I'm very proud of Féile an Phobail and what they've done over the years. They've managed to attract people from all over the world, different communities, different nationalities from right across the city and beyond.
"Look at the smiley faces on our young people, this is massive for the area. These people will be happy and remember this for a long time," he added.
Féile an Phobail runs from 2 to 12 August and features debates, exhibitions, drama and music in various venues across the city.
