The Raleigh Irish Festival – September 28th.

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.
This is our 2nd year at Moore Square …
This event is brought to you by Hibernian Charity of Wake County, the 501C (3) arm of the Wake County Ancient Order of Hibernians, & and 3 Irish Jewels Farm, a nonprofit organization, is an ongoing effort to establish a working farm in the Triangle Area where adults with autism can live and contribute. We hope you will come out and spend the day with us.

Bring the kids — it is a family affair!
