Annapolis Irish Festival


Since the Inaugural Festival in 2011, the AIF has become an Annapolis tradition and a regional attraction thanks to the support of the business community and the people who share our passion for the Emerald Isle and the magical Celtic traditions and music we hold so dear. In 2014 many businesses sponsored this Festival, and $30,000 was donated to local non-profits in our community. We are back again and still growing. The 2015 Annapolis Irish Festival will take place on Friday, July 10th and Saturday, July 11th. This year’s line up will make your heart beat faster and will literally make your hair turn green! The festival will be going full on starting at 4pm on Friday, July 10th featuring 3 stages of entertainment and carry through Saturday (11am - 10pm).

The 2015 Annapolis Irish Festival will host over 70 vendors, the famous Little Leprechaun Land and again benefit the Hospice of the Chesapeake as well as many other non-profits in our community. In just our 4th year we nearly met our 5 year goal of giving back over $100,000 dollars to local non profits! We will crush it this year!

Thank you to our generous sponsors —several of them have been with us from the beginning and we greatly appreciate their support. We salute our volunteers who help make the Irish Fest Weekend happen. We look forward to seeing everyone this year!

What a great day to be Irish!!!!
