The Motor city Irish Fest is an annual event that brings together The Irish and their friends to celebrate Irish Culture with music, dance, food & drink, exhibits and activities for children. Most of all, it brings together everyone for a great weekend full of fun.

In 2018, the 9th annual Motor City Irish Fest June 15, 16 & 17, will feature over twenty Irish bands (see the music page for links to them), five Irish dance groups, pipe & drum bands, an wonderful cultural tent, Ring of Steel (stunt group from Ann Arbor – comedy, fire acts, swords, & audience participation) and an area especially for children of all ages. The children’s area will feature tin whistle lessons, the Kilted Magician, story telling, beginning Irish dance lessons, arts and crafts, bounce houses, face painters and more. Our cultural tent will feature Displays of our Irish heritage along with presentations on the Traveling People (Tinkers) of Ireland and the influence on they had on Irish music history and other cultural presentations.

Great grub can be found in abundance! You could enjoy traditional fish ‘n chips, bangers & mash, corned beef sandwiches, pizza, burgers, ice cream among all the other tempting possibilities.

For the more aged Irish Festival visitors, a favorite gathering place will be the beer tents, serving up ice cold Guinness, Smithwicks, Harp, and Bud Light and hard cider. New this year will be the Jameson Pallet Bar for a wonderful selection of Premium Jameson Whiskey products along with several “whiskey tastings” over the 3 day festival.
