Celebrate all things Irish at the annual St. Patrick’s Festival at the IAHC.
On Saturday, March 11, join us after the downtown Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade for one of Chicago’s biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. The festivities begin are from Noon to midnight.
This large-scale, family-oriented celebration features traditional and contemporary Irish music with dance, food and drink for purchase, children’s activities and vendors selling Irish gifts. Visit the Library, Art Gallery and Museum for programming and exhibits, such as Irish language lessons, a genealogy workshop and a book sale. Attendees can park near the building or be directed to a remote lot and take a free shuttle to the IAHC from 1pm to midnight.
Entertainment includes the Irish Heritage Singers, the Shannon Rovers Irish Pipe Band, the Chancey Brothers, the Dooley Brothers, Patrick and Karen Cannady and Friends, Trinity Irish Dancers, In Spite of Ourselves, the Academy of Irish Music, and the O’Hare School of Irish Dance.
Tickets are $15 for adults, or $12 for advance purchase if bought by the end of the day on March 9. Children 12 and under are free.
