Raleigh Irish Music Festival 2014

Saturday, October 4th, 2014 11 am- 7:30pm Moore Square

The Raleigh Irish Festival was born from an established Irish event which has been hosted by Ancient Order of Hibernians Wake County Division # 1 over the years at the Knights of Columbus.   This event started out as an Irish family picnic – and over the years grew into an Irish music fest. The fest had been outgrowing the space at The Knights hall for quite a while – so organizers from various Irish establishments and organizations got together and started talking about hosting the event in the most central place we could find so more people would be able to come and be part of the culture and heritage we are all so very proud of.

Moore Square is set in the heart of the Raleigh (200 South Blount Street).  It is not so big as we will get lost – nor so small we will feel cramped.  The Square is also a home base for the Raleigh St Patrick’s Day parade festivities – and of course right on the doorstep of Tir Na nOg Irish Pub. It was fitting we decided this would be the perfect new home for Raleigh Irish Fest.
