Clevelands Irish Cultural Festival
Irish History and Traditions
If you're looking for a weekend packed with great Irish bands, dancers, plays, food, literature, children's activities, and historical exhibits, meet us at the Berea Fairgrounds
Cleveland’s Irish Cultural Festival seeks to preserve, memorialize and document Irish History and Traditions -- from the gentle stirrings of the harp, to the boom and pomp of the pipe bands; from the soft hush of our love songs, to the thunder of Celtic dancers and rock bands. Spurred by the vision of founder John O'Brien Sr., over 300 volunteers mobilize annually to breath life into the festival. We are blessed that the culture we celebrate boasts such a wealth of tradition, music, literature, and art -- all bound together by that rich sense of community which typifies the Irish. Following is a brief tour of festival attractions. So, sit back, relax and enjoy.
