Has anybody ever been to this Irish festival? I kind of want to go, but not sure if it's worth it. Are there food, drink vendors, rides? Or, is it just music and mass. Either way, it still sounds fun, but want to get others opinions. If I get no response, I guess I'll know my answer - lol!

I have been going since I was a kid and it is definitly a good time (especially if you are Irish!). It is mostly food, music (contemporary and traditional), drinks, Irish dancing, and some really good Irish handicraft vendors.

Bubba! You're not supposed to start your drinking until you get there and they put the little bracelet on your wrist!
I go every year. It is bigger and better every year. Great music, shopping, food....They have added so much in the history and culture tent that it is a great way to show the kids Irish history...
Just go everyone!...wave at me, buy me a beer...I am the girl with red hair, glasses, a few freckles, killer figure....

i go to A LOT of iish festivals, and this is one of the best.
yes, as a member of the club i have some bias.
BUT
there were a few years when the music was terrible and NOT IRISH, and there were a few years i fulfilled my volunteer duties and LEFT.

NO MORE.

we are bringing in the biggest names in modern and trad celtic music, have great food, full beer and bar service on the field, a childrens area with rides and games, etc etc.

don't miss it next year!
