The Annual Staten
"Ireland" Irish Festival has become more successful each
year with over 6,000 fairgoers passing through its gates in
anticipation of festival fun. There is something for
everyone at the Festival including live local &
international Irish music, a huge array of refreshments, a
40 vendor "tinker" shopping village which provides a huge
array of Irish imports and gifts and a play center for the
children. Also, we present some of the best vendor food on
the East Coast, with many of the food vendors traveling from
the Jersey Shore and Hunter Mountain.
Once again, we will present some of the hottest Irish
Fair talent with a very impressive music lineup. Our Fair
Hostess, Fiona Molloy, a guitar troubadour in her own
right who has been on the music scene for over 35 years, is
presenting performers from all over the globe. Go to
the Entertainers Page as well as the Schedule Page to learn
about all the artists who will play our three stages at
this, the Lucky 13th Annual Staten Ireland Irish Fair.
Saturday at Noon the Staten Island Pipes and Drums, one
of five pipe bands participating in the Pipe and Drum Tatoo
on Sunday, will kick off the opening ceremonies to begin the
fair. The fair runs all day Saturday from 12 noon to 8pm.
Sunday the gates open at 10:00 for those wanting to attend
the traditional Irish High Mass and the festival will begin
immediately following the High Mass with The Pipe and Drum Tatoo.
Admission is $10 at the gate or $8 advance
purchase. Children under 12 are admitted free when
accompanied by an adult. Please see the Admission Page
to find out where you may purchase advance tickets and
we do hope you patronize these Fair Friends.
