Niagara Irish Festival
August 25 @ 5:00 pm - August 26 @ 11:30 pm
This is a two day Irish Festival set outdoors at Firemen’s Park, in beautiful Niagara Falls, Canada. Niagara Irish Festival is presented by Irish Music Niagara, a non profit organisation that runs weekly traditional Irish music sessions and folk singalongs in Niagara Falls.
The aim of the festival is to celebrate Irish Music Culture in a family friendly, community centred way. Niagara Irish Festival prioritizes quality artisans, musicians and businesses that are based locally while extending a warm welcome to all who wish to visit our lovely city! Niagara Irish Festival is very thankful for the support it receives from the City of Niagara Falls, Canada.
Niagara Irish Festival is organised by a committee of local volunteers with strong links to Ireland and Niagara. They are guided by the principle that the festival must be Authentic, Irish and Fun!
