One of the biggest Irish festivals in the country is held at the Jersey shore every September, North Wildwood holds the annual Irish Weekend Fall Festival!! As many as a quarter of a million people celebrate their Irish heritage in North Wildwood each year!!
This awesome event started back in 1991 as a small group of people celebrating their Irish heritage down at the Jersey shore!!
Now, it has grown to be the biggest Irish festival on the east coast!! With people both young and old gathering for a weekend of fun, shopping, music, and of course drinking!!
The Irish Weekend Fall Festival truly has become one of the premier Wildwood weekend events! Proceeds from the Irish Fall Festival benefit many Ancient Order of Hibernians charities, as the event is organized by the Cape May County chapter. For more information on this year’s festival, call 1-800-IRISH-91.
See bands like Sean Flemming, Jamison, Celtic Connection, Bogside Rogues and may others. Irish Step Dancers to heart melting Bagpippers.
And an occasional Leprechaun!
