The Danbury Irish Festival is a three-day celebration of the Emerald Isle and this year you can join in on the fun from September 20-22. Ceili, traditional Irish dancing, will be performed for the crowd at intervals throughout the weekend, and if you time your visit right you can even join a dancing lesson and get in on the fun yourself. The Irish cultural tent will offer educational displays on Irish history and heritage (think Celtic art, Irish family histories, traditional crochet, and more). You can even sign up for Gaelic lessons, if you want. Food vendors will be selling corned beef and cabbage sandwiches, as well as pints of Guinness, while live bands play on the main stage.
Teens and adults can get a single day ticket for $10, or a full festival pass for $20. Kids under 12 are always free.
