The Burlington Irish Heritage Festival offers our community a week packed with activities, both fun-filled and informative, which celebrate Irish-American culture and community. The combination of music, lectures, movies, drama and dance provides a little something for everyone. Most of the festival events are presented with free admission, making our fundraising raffle a great draw, with wonderful prizes to win.

Céad Mile Fáilte! Welcome to the 18th Annual Burlington Irish Heritage Festival! Our diverse schedule of Irish music, dance, and cultural events spans the whole St. Patrick's Season. This year we begin early, March 3rd, and go late, March 30th.

These events are made possible largely thanks to our close collaboration with our valued long-time partners, Young Tradition Vermont, McFadden Academy of Irish Dance and new partners, Burlington Irish Music (Robert Ryan & Dominique Dodge). We are excited that Rí Rá Irish Pub will be the primary sponsor of the Irish Music Showcase on March 16th.

Thanks also to our media sponsor:
Front Porch Forum

Our committee thanks you warmly for your past support and looks forward to seeing you at this year's Festival! We welcome your questions and feedback and we encourage you to consider joining the BIHF Committee to plan our 2014 Festival - or to volunteer during the Festival.
