CityCenter Danbury, in partnership with The Greater Danbury Irish Cultural Center, is lucky to present the Greater Danbury Irish Festival. Celebrating its 27th year running, Danbury’s CityCenter Green at 1 Ives Street is the honored host for the very first time. You won’t need to wait until March to be Irish for the day! This two-day event is now rescheduled for October 7th & 8th due to expected inclement weather this weekend.
Many cultural delights are ongoing all weekend long, including live music along with Irish dancers, a shopping village, face painting for kids, and cultural activities for the whole family. Try your luck at the raffle, bid on treasures of a silent auction, indulge in delicious food and play games.
Live bands on stage include Mighty Ploughboys, Tipperary Knights, Celtic Cross Pipe and Drum to name a few. Vendors will sell authentic Irish imports including clothing, jewelry, woodwork, and Gaelic calligraphy. Beer and other beverages will be served along with Irish coffees and delicious baked goods. Traditional Celtic goods will also be on view. And the day would not be complete without corned beef sandwiches!
A pot of gold awaits at CityCenter Green - admission is FREE and there is plenty of parking! Come see what a real Irish cóisir (or festival) is all about, enjoy celebrating Irish heritage, and maybe even find a four-leaf clover, right in the heart of Danbury!
