Celtic Harvest Festival
Irish Cultural Center (429 Morgan Road, West Springfield, MA 01107, West Springfield MA)
Celebrate the season of the Celtic autumn equinox at our first Celtic Harvest Festival on September 10 from 12 – 6 pm. Just like our Celtic ancestors used to join together at this time of year to reap the fall harvest and celebrate their good fortunes, you are invited to enjoy a variety of free activities and fun events for kids and adults alike.
Enjoy shopping from local craft vendors with items such as jewelry, pottery, homemade decorative crafts, essential oils, quilts and much more. Try the Irish House Restaurant menu as you enjoy performances from The Stout Porters, our trad Irish session, and the Cassin Academy of Irish Dance. The kids can enjoy face painting and our County Kerry Castle Bounce House. Take part in a Céilí Dancing Workshop! Drinks and food available for purchase.
We will also hold our Handmade Irish Blanket Raffle – the drawing will be at 4:00 pm (winner need not be present).
The festival takes place on the patio, on the field, and inside the Trinity Pub. There is some tent coverage available in case of rain.
