A three-day celebration of music, food and culture from the Emerald Isle kicks off Friday September 20. The Greater Danbury Irish Festival offers both indoor and outdoor attractions, including a huge slate of live entertainers like Sheleigh Law, The Mighty Ploughboys, Green Gates Ceili Band (featuring Irish step dancers), and Tipperary Knights. There will also be a cultural tent where you can learn more about genealogical research, enjoy Irish poetry and literature, or even sign up for Gaelic language lessons. In addition, you can learn about Irish culture and heritage at the Irish hospitality center, shop at vendor booths selling traditional arts and crafts, and sample some tasty and authentic Irish foods.
Tickets are $5 for Friday, $10 each for Saturday and Sunday, or $20 for a full festival pass. Children ages 12 and under get free entry. Take note: no outside food or beverages permitted.
