Saturday, March 12th

After a two-year hiatus, Patriot Place will once again celebrate the joys of Irish culture with the 11th annual Irish Festival, taking place Saturday, March 12 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The daylong celebration will feature live performances by Irish musicians and step dancers, as well as a full slate of free Irish-themed activities for the whole family to enjoy. This popular Patriot Place tradition is free and open to the public.

The fun includes musical performances from Slainte, Devri and Joshua Tree Band on the Dean College Stage, as well as Irish step dancing performances from several talented groups hosted by Six String Grill & Stage. Throughout the festival, families can also enjoy activities including airbrush tattoos, caricature artists, a balloon artist, petting zoo and more.

Additionally, Patriot Place will host a number of special appearances throughout the day, including the Providence Hurling Club and Old Colony Highland Pipe Band. The Patriot Place North Marketplace will also be lined with several authentic Irish merchants, including the Irish Import Shop, Eire’s Irish Imports, JAT Creations and more. The Irish Festival will take place rain or shine.

“After a two-year hiatus, we are thrilled to once again have the opportunity to celebrate Irish Festival at Patriot Place,” said Brian Earley, Vice President and General Manager of Patriot Place. “Irish Festival is one of our favorite events of the year, bringing together families from across New England to enjoy Irish step dancing, musical performances, traditional Irish demonstrations and family-friendly activities. We can’t wait to see everyone back at Patriot Place on March 12 for what promises to be another great celebration.”
