This Saturday, March 17, is very special St. Patrick’s Day for me!
Last week, I was named a 2018 Irish Honoree by the City of Los Angeles. The award came as a result of my help in bringing the annual Irish Fair and Music Festival to the Great Park in Irvine.
I am tremendously honored to be named an Irish Honoree. Irish Americans have contributed enormously to our nation, and I am proud to help share and celebrate Irish culture in our Great Park.
The Irish Fair and Music Festival will be held on June 9 and 10, 2018, at the Great Park in Irvine. It is dedicated to preserving and promoting Irish and Irish-American culture in the Southern California area by presenting Irish music, dance, theatre, language, sports and all other aspects of the Irish heritage.
Now in its 43rd year, the Irish Fair has become a landmark for Irish and Irish American culture and family entertainment. Over 30,000 people attend the event annually. It has been described as the happiest and most fun filled event in all of Southern California.
Among the many artists appearing at the Festival at the Great Park this year are The Fenians, The Humble Hooligans, Craic in the Stone, Sligo Rags, Cillian’s Bridge, Rory Makem, and Dónal Clancy.
The Irish Fair also features Irish Step Dancing, Irish, Scottish and British import shops and arts & craft vendors.
You can find more information, and tickets, online at BIG Irish Fair and Music Festival.
See you there!
