It’s your lucky day! Or, weekend … The Louisville Irish Fest is back for another year of family-friendly fun. This year’s theme, Ireland Rising: 1916-2016, brings a celebration of traditional Irish food and beverages, song and dance, shopping, activities and adventures through Ireland’s great history. For the wee ones, a children’s play area provides hours of entertainment. While the lasses and lads can imbibe the finest fare and pints Louisville pubs have to offer. Dallahan, the headlining band direct from Scotland, will be performing both days on the LEO Main Stage. They will be joined by over a dozen other bands performing over the two-day festival. The Irish Fest is the premier fundraising event for the Irish Arts Foundation of Kentucky. So come out to learn, live and love like the Irish. Sláinte!
