Calendar of Celtic Festivals and Parades in the US

Irish ancestry is something to be proud of – celebrate it by attending an authentic Irish festival this year! All over the USA, Irish-Americans are getting together to experience the unique charms of Gaelic culture – festival music, dance, and arts & crafts honor the traditions of the Emerald Isle.

Parades, pancake breakfasts, live performances, and socializing are just a few highlights at one of these unforgettable events…

We know you’ll love everything Irish festivals have to offer…so we’ve made it easier for you to find out about every festival going on in America this year! Our handy calendar (below) lets you decide which festival works best with your schedule.

At the moment, we’re in the process of adding new events whenever we can find them. Some festivals for 2011 haven’t been announced yet – but they will be soon. We will update our calendar constantly to make it the most practical reference it can be. If you know about a wonderful Irish festival in your part of the United States, please drop us a line and we’ll add it to our new list:

To give you even more convenience, we’ve also added the Calendar Of Irish Festivals to our Facebook and Twitter pages – be sure to follow us for instant updates that will allow you to plan a fun outing (or two!) this year. Saint Patrick’s Day is on the horizon – use this special occasion to celebrate your Irish heritage – we’re here to help with our new list of every festival in America.

We’ve also created a full list of the Celtic festivals and parades that we’ve found on the Internet. You won’t find some of these festivals in our calendar above; that’s because they haven’t yet set a date for 2011. As soon as we know those dates, we’ll add the event to the calendar. You can check out the full list here.
