35th Annual Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival is back at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds July 21-23, 2017!
The festival offers a wide range of music from traditional to Celtic Rock. Rock-n-Reel Headliners include Gaelic Storm, The Prodigals, Marys Lane and The Boys from the County Hell on the Celtic Thunder Stage in the Grand Stand. Song and dance aficionados will love The Fitzgerald’s, like Riverdance, only faster; Karan Casey, Derek Warfield & the Young Wolfe Tones, Cherish The Ladies, Searson, Runa, Garry Gormley, Cassie & Maggie McDonald and Socks in the Frying Pan, plus festival favorites James Kilbane, Sean Wilson, New Barleycorn, Brigid’s Cross, The Kilroy Ceili Band, and singer/songwriter/comedian Dermot Henry.
Also, over 50 Irish vendors with everything from Aran knits to delicious Irish chocolate, T-Shirts, Jewelry, music and that special gift, calling you home. The Tir Na nOg (Land of Our Youth) Children’s Area features Magicians, Puppeteers, continuous activities and live performances, inflatables and much more, including Lunchables for the kids. There are fourteen breeds of dogs native to Ireland, and they will all be at the Fest, with demos and highlights from breed owners.
Authentic Irish food vendors include Hooley House Irish Pubs, Sully’s Irish Pub, Merry Arts Pub, and the Irish Coffee House; plentiful American fare for kids (and Lunchables!) and adults alike is also available.
