The festival runs September 10–12, and kids 12 and under get free admission with a ticket.

The Pittsburgh Irish Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with three days of Celtic culture at Riverplex at Sandcastle, showcasing a wide variety of entertainers on four stages near the waterfront. The schedule includes Friday and Saturday performances by Gaelic Storm, which made an appearance in Titanic, and whose music blends traditional Irish melodies and world music. The festival includes a cultural area filled with weavers, historians, lace-makers, storytellers who weave stories about lace, and classes on Gaelic language and Celtic symbol drawing. The Genealogy Pavilion provides the resources needed to start digging into Irish roots with an Irish shovel.

Pittsburgh Irish Festival

The sounds of guitars, bodhrans, fiddles, tin whistles surrounds visitors. The aromas of traditional Irish cuisine waft through the air, and around every turn is some new piece of Irish culture. No, this isn't some daydream fueled by too much shepherd's pie. Each year, the Pittsburgh Irish Festival transforms a small part of the city into the Emerald Isle. In total, the festival schedules more than 28 hours of entertainment over the course of three days. Four stages play host to Irish rock and other traditional music. Visitors might also see Irish step dancing and storytellers, who breathe new life into traditional legends and folktales.

Hands-on activities also dot the festival grounds, including the chance to pet native Irish dogs or even search your family tree for Irish ancestors. And in addition to traditional cuisine, the festival hosts a tasting tent with Irish whiskey, Irish cider, and Irish experts who explain how these spirits are made.
