The North Texas Irish Festival, one of the largest Irish festivals in the U.S., was grown right here in North Texas, and returns this year March 3-5 to celebrate 35 years of music and Irish culture. This year's theme, Texas Grown – Irish Roots, celebrates the amazing music, dance, and cultural talent in and around our region and incorporates the beautifully, rich tradition of Irish and other Celtic influences. Tens of thousands of fans (Irish and Irish-for-a-day alike!) will converge upon Fair Park to enjoy top musicians and dancers from around the world and a number of cultural presentations on 13 stages at Fair Park. Music, dancing, whiskey tastings, blacksmithing demonstrations, horse displays, Celtic storytelling, animal rescue groups, Shepherd's pie, Irish stew, dozens of activities for kids and child-friendly entertainment, and chef demonstrations.
