Thanks to the over 6,000 friends who joined in the fun last year. Our annual Irish gathering continues to grow and becomes more successful each time we get together. Our committee of volunteers have been expanding and bringing new energetic ideas to the front lines.
There is something for everyone at our festival with local & international artists playing traditional Irish & pub music live on 2 stages, The Tinker’s Shopping Village, a vast array of refreshments and the Traditional Sunday Catholic Mass. It looks like this year is lining up to be our biggest and best yet.
Local Irish dance schools, such as Mrs. Rosemary’s & Forest Haven Center For Dance, will be on hand to do some jigs and reels for the crowds.
We have Traditional Bagpipe bands featuring our local favorites The Richmond County Pipes & Drums and The Staten Island Pipes & Drums along with many others.
Our lovely Fair Hostess Fiona Molloy, a minstrel girl in her own right, will be introducing some of the hottest Irish music performers from all over the globe.
Click on the Entertainers and Schedule tabs to see who is playing and when.
Land of Leprechauns is a play center for the wee ones.
Entry to Land of Leprechauns requires an additional charge at admission.
The Tinker’s Shopping Village always has a great array of Irish imports and Irish themed gifts.
