Arlington Heights Irish Fest
Arlington Heights, Illinois, USA
Thousands will gather in one of the most historic areas in Arlington Heights to celebrate the 14th annual Irish Fest. Situated in the historic district of Arlington Heights, the Historical Museum’s Irish Fest boasts two days packed with Irish dancing, heritage, fun and food. All proceeds from the Irish Fest benefit the Historical Museum and help to fund educational programs, permanent and traveling exhibits, a local historical artifacts and research library as well as programs and events in our historic buildings including the Banta House, the Muller House, the Heritage Gallery, and Log Cabin.
Irish Fest is all Irish all day for the entire family with a huge line up of Irish entertainment, food, vendors and cultural programs. Fans of all things Irish can spend two days on the beautiful Arlington Heights Historical Museum grounds immersed in sounds, smells and tastes of Ireland. Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. No pets please.
