DALLAS, TX – The 34th Annual North Texas Irish Festival returns to Fair Park March 4-6, this year celebrating the legends of the past and the legacy that continues to draw tens of thousands of fans to Dallas for everyone’s favorite celebration of music, dance and Irish culture. Presented by the Southwest Celtic Music Association, a non-profit that fosters the great tradition of Irish culture in North Texas, this largest cultural festival in DFW is also revered as one of the best Irish festivals in the U.S.
At the heart of the North Texas Irish Festival is the music. This year’s theme, Legends and Legacies, highlights the true legends of Irish music who leave a legacy for fans of all generations. This year, gracing the festival are international favorites Altan and Solas, among other featured performers from around the world. New this year are special appearances from Celtic Aire, the premier folk ensemble of the U.S. Air Force; and Scythian, a Celtic band from the Ukraine that specializes in “immigrant rock.” From highlighting true legends of Irish music to continuing the legacy through newer, young musicians emerging from the North Texas hotbed of Irish music, North Texas Irish Festival proves to be another rich, cultural experience that will have toes tapping and minds blown.
