Come and celebrate Kansas City's proud Celtic heritage at KC Irish Fest 2018! Enjoy three full days of Irish music, dancing, comedy, and more. KC Irish Fest will be held August 31st to September 2nd, 2018 at the Crown Center in Kansas City, MO.
Kansas City's deep Irish roots are the foundation for one of the nation's largest annual Irish festivals. KC Irish Fest attracts upwards of 90,000 people to the city every Labor Day weekend. If you've never experienced it, you're in for a real treat.
KC Irish Fest includes more than two dozen bands and dance groups performing both traditional and modern takes on Irish music. Irish Fest also includes a host of Irish comedians.
Beyond the entertainment, you'll also enjoy a variety of Irish heritage displays and workshops, shopping, Irish food, and more. There's even an outdoor Catholic Mass - the city’s largest - on Sunday morning.
Irish food and drink? You betcha. Vendors will be on hand selling all manner of items, including delicious food. KC Irish Fest also includes a Jameson Irish Whiskey Tasting Tent. Guests, 21 years and older, can enjoy a sampling of up to six different Irish or High Mark whiskeys. Each tasting includes a forty-five minute presentation by a Jameson Ambassador, followed by a 15 minute Q & A session. Tasting sessions are limited, however, so grab your ticket while you still can.
Kansas City Irish Fest also includes an Art in the Park showcase and genealogy experts to help you trace the lines of your Irish Family Tree. There's a whole kids area, too, and plenty to keep everyone in your group entertained.
