IrishFest Atlanta was launched November 2013 to promote the culture of Ireland through the country’s traditional music, song, dance, and language. The vision of IrishFest Atlanta’s original founders was to create a weekend of cultural performances, lectures, and workshops in a festive environment appealing to community members of all ages and varying familiarity of all things Irish. An important aspect of IrishFest Atlanta is its featured guest artists of International, National, and Regional reputation who teach and perform throughout the weekend.
There will be music, dancing, a céilí (kaylee), special experiences such as whiskey tastings and an Irish tea with the Consul General of Ireland among other experiences. Check out the full schedule of events on their website. The event is free to attend, however some experiences do require tickets.
