Irish Fest 2017
- The Music: Listen to Irish folk tunes and contemporary hits from a variety of musical acts on six different stages, including performances by Gaelic Storm, a multi-national Celtic band and their latest release, Matching Sweaters. The new album mixes traditional Irish music with modern influences, creating a sound that’s as wide-ranging as the band’s own audience. We Banjo 3, from Ireland, combines old world tradition and authentic Americana by plying their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub “Celtgrass.” Runa, a contemporary group that blends classic Irish beats and lilting vocals with the harmonies of jazz, bluegrass, and even flamenco.
- The Dance: The Trinity Academy of Irish Dance sends out classically trained Irish dancers to perform quick steps on stage, but festival-goers can also learn some steps themselves with one of the Trinity Irish Dancers’ daily dance lessons.
- For the Kids: At an outdoor kids’ area, young ones can play group games, get their face painted with the Irish flag, or even pet the visiting Irish wolfhound dogs.

About Irish American Heritage Center
Occupying a building that sprang up at the turn of the 20th century, the Irish American Heritage Center (IAHC) somehow manages to cram Ireland into one of Chicago’s city blocks. Work from Irish artists hangs in the building’s art gallery, books from Irish authors fill its library, Irish plays light up its 658-seat theater, and Irish food and drinks delight the crowd on the main floor at the Fifth Province Pub. The IAHC also has a knowledgeable staff of instructors, who teach classes on everything from Irish dance and music to Irish language and genealogy.
