North Texas Irish Festival



36th Annual North Texas Irish Festival Returns to Fair Park March 2nd – 4th

The music, the dancing the cultural talent, education and family-friendly atmosphere is all found at the North Texas Irish Festival, which returns March 2-4, 2018, to Dallas’ Fair Park. One of the largest Irish festivals in the U.S., the North Texas Irish Festival celebrates the amazing music, dance, and cultural talent in the beautiful, rich tradition of Irish and other Celtic influences. Tens of thousands of fans (Irish and Irish-for-a-day alike!) will converge upon Fair Park to enjoy top musicians and dancers from around the world and a number of cultural presentations on 13 stages.  The event is presented by the Southwest Celtic Music Association, an all-volunteer, non-profit association based in Dallas that fosters the great tradition of Irish culture in North Texas.

Music, dancing, whiskey tastings, blacksmithing demonstrations, horse displays, Celtic storytelling, animal rescue groups, Shepherd’s pie, Irish stew, dozens of activities for kids and child-friendly entertainment, and chef demonstrations will comprise a weekend of fun for fans of all ages.
