It’s that time of year! Join us as we kick-off the Irish Season with our 9th Annual Irish WinterFest, a celebration of Irish music and dance. Due to popular demand, we are expanding this year’s event to include the Derek Warfield and the Young Wolf Tones Concert on Friday evening, February 28 (single event tickets here). A special combo ticket is available for General Admission to both events!
WinterFest will once again feature local and regional musicians mixed with good food, drink and craic, all taking place in Drexel Hall, the Irish Center’s event space.
Also returning is the immensely popular VIP area on the balcony of Drexel Hall, which includes a private bar, and hors d’oeuvres 6-8 p.m. and desserts 8-9 p.m., provided by Brady’s Public House. Only 50 VIP tickets are available, and they sold out quickly last year!
This year’s event is once again being coordinated with the annual Gaelic Mass at Redemptorist Church, just two blocks down the road. Mass begins at 5 p.m.
As if all of this isn’t enough, the Parade Committee will be announcing the 2020 Parade Honorees during the event!
