This weekend–the 2014 Greater Hartford Irish Music Festival takes place on the grounds of the Irish American Home Society in Glastonbury, CT.
From the website:
Cead mile failte…one hundred thousand welcomes to the 2014 Greater Hartford Irish Music Festival! We welcome you to the 31st edition of our festival held on the grounds of the Irish American Home Society in Glastonbury! Thirty-one years of fine music, dancing and celebration of our Irish heritage! The Festival Committee has been hard at work all year, listening to the feedback of festival goers and volunteers as we planned this year’s event. As a result we’ve brought back the carnival by Northeast Midways. And what’s a festival without great food options? We’ve expanded your culinary choices by adding several new food vendors. Back by popular demand on our Main Stage is the ever popular Savage Brothers Band appearing both Friday and Saturday evenings. On Saturday, catch the Men in Kilts contest on the Main Stage or enjoy a whiskey tasting in our Jameson Pavilion paired with a cigar from The SmokeEasy Cigar Parlor. Don’t forget to stop by the Celtic Café for a lovely cup of tea or an iced coffee! Visit the GAA booth and demonstrate your skills in the national sports of Ireland, Gaelic football and hurling. Learn a few Irish set dances at the Cultural Tent. There is truly something for everyone!
