What You'll Get
Seeing live music can be a transcendent, mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater, or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two adult tickets for one day of the Pittsburgh Irish Festival ($20 Value) in West Homestead. 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.
