Celebrate all things Irish at the annual St. Patrick’s Festival at the IAHC.
On Saturday, March 11, join us after the downtown St. Patrick’s Day Parade for one of Chicago’s biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. The festivities are from Noon to Midnight.
This large-scale celebration features traditional and contemporary Irish music with dance, food and drink for purchase, children’s activities and vendors selling Irish gifts. Visit the Library, Art Gallery and Museum for programming and exhibits, such as Irish language lessons, a genealogy workshop and a book sale. Attendees can park near the building or be directed to a remote lot and take a free shuttle to the IAHC from 1pm to midnight.
Vendors include Images of Ireland Photography, Rampant Lion, Because I Like It, The Irish Boutique, Ballyea Jewelry, Galway Bakers
