Members of the Armed Forces and emergency services stood shoulder to shoulder in remembrance at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast.
Lord Lieutenant of Belfast Dame Mary Peters, Lord Mayor Gavin Robinson and chairman of the RUC George Cross Foundation Jim McDonald were among the guests of honour at the event which was compered by UTV journalist Marc Mallett.
Those assembled enjoyed two hours of musical entertainment from the bands of the Royal Irish Regiment (TA), the Royal Irish Folk Group, the Pipes and Drums of the Royal Irish Regiment, as well as the Belfast Community Gospel Choir, close-harmony vocal trio Swingabella and soloist Michelle Baird.
The festival on Saturday night culminated with an interdenominational religious service and the Act of Remembrance.
Organised every year by the Royal British Legion, the Festival of Remembrance commemorates those members of the services who have fallen, and pays tribute to those currently serving, in the field of conflict.
Meanwhile, yesterday Mr Robinson planted a cross at the Field of Remembrance dedication at Belfast City Hall.
A short service was led by the Rev Canon Samuel McVeigh TD, Northern Ireland Area Chaplain of the Royal British Legion.
