About the Indy Irish Fest
The Indy Irish Fest is celebrating 22 years in the Indianapolis community! The festival is an opportunity to share Irish heritage through music, dance, cultural activities, and family fun. The festival committee, an all volunteer group, and a recognized 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, was formed in 1996 to host the first festival. The Irish are the second largest ethnic group to settle in the Indianapolis area. They have served the community in the fields of religion, education, medicine, law, the arts, politics and commerce.
The festival has grown significantly over the years and with it, so has the festival’s support of charities and community organizations. Since its inception, the festival has made donations to or helped community organizations raise more than $150,000. In recognition of the years-long struggle of the Irish during the potato famine, we will now be partnering more closely with the St. Vincent de Paul food bank to assist with feeding the hungry. We hope to make a meaningful impact in this area.
