Event Summary
After another very successful year, the Kansas City Irish Festival is happy to continue their annual Art in the Park addition to their celebration of Celtic pride. Up to fifty artisans will be showcased in the beautiful tree-lined Washington Park, adjacent to Crown Center Square and in the heart of Kansas City’s burgeoning historical art district – the Crossroads. This year, the KC Irish Fest weekend corresponds with Kansas City’s First Fridays – the first Friday of each month when the Crossroads Community's art galleries, studios, and restaurants open their doors to showcase local and national artists.

The Kansas City Irish Festival, the fastest growing Irish festival in America, has an outstanding reputation among participants and visitors, attracting over 100,000 people annually. We showcase two dozen world class acts on five main stages, Irish heritage exhibits, fabulous traditional food, children’s activities, and an Irish Marketplace. Two hotels on site sell out over 2000 hotel nights over the weekend. This juried festival is open to all emerging and established artists. Where we are looking to add to the cultural climate of a Celtic Festival, we are not limited to Celtic themed art.
