Indy Irish Fest – September 24th & 25th

The Indy GAA will have an informational booth at for both days of this event. If you're interested in volunteering to help staff the booth please fill out our volunteer form →

The 25th Annual Indy Irish Fest is September 24-25, 2021 at Garfield Park! Indy’s long-running celebration of Irish culture will be full-force at our sheared-down festival this September.

A Friday & Saturday celebration!

2020 threw a wrench in a lot of things. As we continue to plan optimistically and cautiously, a shorter festival is more manageable.

There’s a new location!

To better accommodate our sheared-down event, we needed a smaller, but just as accessible outdoor space. Garfield Park is an amazing park on the near-southside of Indy.

Done in full Irish-fashion!

Live music, Irish dancers, cultural exhibits, sheep, Irish dogs, fun food and beverage options will be part of the Fest!

Indy Irish Fest will be keeping an eye on CDC guidelines and will be sharing more details about this safe, family-friendly festival in the coming weeks.
