Children's Activities

The Children’s Area at the Irish Fair of Minnesota is filled with entertaining and interactive activities for kids of all ages. Meet native Irish dogs, explore the Irish instrument museum, as well as enjoy face painting and storytelling.

Children can also participate in engaging and hands-on Irish history, music and dance lessons. Baarry the Sheep, the Irish Fair of Minnesota’s lovable mascot, is also known to stop by the area to socialize and pose for pictures.


We are currently developing our schedule for this year’s children’s area, so stay tuned for more information!
