Our annual festival is recognized as one of the most family-friendly events in the Twin Cities, one of the largest and most authentic Irish festivals nationwide and an amazingly great time!

The Irish Fair of Minnesota is a 3-day cultural festival filled with all things Irish! This year, the event is August 9-11, 2024. We build a small city on Harriet Island in St. Paul to house 6+ stages for Irish music and dance, pub tents for refreshments, a sports field for soccer, hurling, and camogie demonstrations, marketplace tents, and various other areas for kids activities and cultural programming. We invite entertainers, artisans, food vendors, and marketplace vendors from all around the country (and beyond) to provide an authentic experience for our guests.
