About Irish Fair
The Irish Fair of Minnesota is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization with 10 board members that are dedicated to promoting and celebrating Irish culture and our community.This year, we invite you to join us at Harriet Island Regional Park, on the banks of the beautiful Mississippi River, for a celebration of all things Irish with music, dance, family activities and good craic!
Our 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 by the 80,000 people who attended last year's festival. Come by, listen to the music, watch the dancers, and even enjoy a pint or two!
All proceeds from the festival are invested in supporting the Irish Fair's mission or in supporting our Irish and Celtic cultural community. The festival and organization is volunteer driven and supported by people throughout the state. Please consider joining our volunteer team or donating to our Legacy Fund.
