Pittsburgh Irish Festival 20th Anniversary – Erin go Bragh!

10 Sep

May the luck o’ the Irish be with you!

And it can be, this weekend!

The Pittsburgh Irish Festival is going on September 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2010, and is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

This annual festival is being held at the Riverplex near Sandcastle at the Waterfront in Homestead, and runs 4pm-midnight tonight, 11am-midnight tomorrow, and 9am-6pm on Sunday.

Tickets are $12 at the gate for adults ($10 advance tickets), and children and seniors are $8 a piece.  (Special $5 discount for active military!) This ticket price gains you admission to the event where you can take part in this Celtic celebration!

Enjoy Irish food and drinks, traditional music and dancing, and even an Irish dog tent! There’s also lots of shopping and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, as well as Happy Hour specials!

Are you more interested in history and heritage? They have that, too. Watch Irish artisans work, speak with a genealogist at the “Genealogy Pavilion” to learn about YOUR Irish history, and, also learn about Irish traditions straight from on-site historians.

There’s something for everyone at the Irish Festival, whether you want to party, play Blarney Bingo, do children’s Celtic arts and crafts, check out Gaelic sports or a Song for Ireland exhibit, and more!

Come check out the Pittsburgh Irish Festival and celebrate its 20th anniversary this weekend!

PS: Don’t worry about having to miss church, either! On Sunday at 10am, you can join them for a special Gaelic mass!
