Come join us to celebrate the culture of Ireland with music, food, drink and dance. Check us out and help us support the community, this is a family friendly event hosted at the Clarion Inn and Suites, 3130 Victoria Avenue.

Good News: The free Festival buses are back!  Go here for the route and times.  Thanks to the City of Brandon and RBC.

This year we are serving gluten-free stew so that all can enjoy a hot meal.

Thursday is Family Night! We will have two lessons for kids of all ages: an introduction to Irish dance and then and introduction to Irish rhythms.  Another special treat will be the simultaneous combination of live music and dance.  The wonderful McConnell Dancers will perform some of their sets to music provided by Humours of Whiskey, a fantastic way to make a double!

2017

Our pavilion ran for the three days and was another success allowing us to donate $6000 to various groups in our community.  Thank you to all that attended and volunteered.  Dance and live music was provided by bands Tom Foolery, Tame Fox, Seamus Ojibway, Shameless Folk, MNM and Cribreagh and The McConnell School of Dance: Winnipeg Performance and Brandon Divisions.  A big thanks to the great people who work at Clarion Hotel and Suites who provide wonderful support to our pavilion efforts. Look Music Services kept the music sounding fine again too.
