2014 North Texas Irish Festival at Fair Park- 3 DAY EVENT

This is a 3 day event so go when it's best for you. I will probably go on Sunday around 2. If any members want to meet up feel free to chime out in the comment section. NOTE: This IS a dog friendly event. They charge a whole dollar per dog for admission.

The North Texas Irish Festival returns Saturday, February 28th through Sunday, March 2nd and features top Irish musicians and dancers from around the world and a number of cultural presentations on 13 stages at Fair Park.  After all that music and dancing, hungry appetites can be satisfied at one of the many food booths featuring traditional Irish cuisine. On the Tom Thumb Culinary Stage, cooking presentations from top chefs will modernize Irish classics with new flavor twists and cook with traditional Irish ingredients like Guinness;  fare that attendees can taste and then wash down with a glass of their favorite Irish beverage. Whiskey tastings, blacksmithing demonstrations, archery in a Celtic village, Gaelic football and horse displays allow attendees to experience Celtic culture. Urchin Street kid-friendly activities include children’s entertainment, a petting zoo, safety demonstrations and art activities. Storytellers will weave tales of Celtic lore on the Shanachie Stage.

      I stayed home and cut firewood because of the freezing rain. I am not a wimp and love being out in the cold but Dallasites cannot drive in any kind of weather.

    Hey Rex, can you change the date and time on this to Sunday so it comes up on our calendars correctly? Then you can add separate ones for Friday and Saturday attendees.
