Explore the history and the culture of Ireland at this year’s Maryland Irish Festival! Maryland, one of the first colonies to accept the Irish in the 1600’s, is the perfect place to embrace the Celtic culture, so make sure to come out this weekend. With all the cool things going on at the festival, you’ll learn all about the traditions, music, dance and food of Ireland. Featuring Irish bands like Screaming Orchards, there will be tons of great songs to dance to throughout all the days of the festival. Not interested in the songs of Ireland? Then head over to the kilt competition to see real Irish style, or watch a demonstration on making Irish wool and linen. When you’re all done with these excellent events, check out the various vendors like Benedictine Gift & Book Shop, Got Kilt, and Dancing Hands Jewelry to pick out a great gift for yourself or your Irish friends.
