Explore and experience the cultural roots and contemporary influences of Ireland through live performances, visual arts, hands-on activities, foods, games and a lively marketplace. Irish tunes, step dancing and the Irish jig keep the energy flowing at this Irish Festival. Festival-goers may trace their roots in genealogy workshops, learn the Irish language and take in colorful cultural exhibits and contemporary Irish short films. Meet Irish celebrities; view Irish movies, cultural exhibits and demonstrations, and have a “great craic” (gaelic for “a great times”).
