All things Celtic reign o’er downtown’s Military Park for this three-day annual Irish celebration. There’s plenty of foot-stomping music and a seemingly endless supply of beer. But there are also sheep herding exhibitions, an Irish toast contest, a rugby jamboree, a hurling tournament (as in the sport!), an Irish breed dog show and, on Sunday, a Catholic Mass to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Price: $8 in advance, $13 at the gate, $10 for students, free for kids 13 and under.
