Irish Music, Kilts, Craic and Gift Ideas

There is so much going on this year at the Maryland Irish Festival, and as always each day brings something to entertain each member of the family.

On Saturday we have our kids play area, live music, the Speaker’s Tent, and cultural presentations all day, and Tom Lawler, our Vendor Chair reminds us to “take care of all of your Christmas Shopping in one place” by visiting our varied Irish vendors with their spectacular array of Irish Gift ideas.

Like us on our Facebook page to keep up to speed on all the latest announcements as the Festival draws near.
