Great Irish Fair of New Ulm 2015

The Great Irish Fair of New Ulm encourages friendship, loyalty and kinship among those people of New Ulm and the surrounding area who are interested in Irish culture, traditions and history. The festival will feature the O’Shea Irish Dancers travelling performance troupe, a performance of traditional Irish music by Charlie Heymann and Chad McAnally, an Irish Bed Turning – a presentation of heritage quilts along with an Irish tea and scones, ‘Irish Tales and Other Blarney’ storyteller Pati Kachel, and an artisan market and traditional Irish foods and refreshments.

Luck O’ the Irish & Fun Galore

Come join us for the party and a wee bit ‘o fun! All events at the Great Irish Fair of New Ulm are free and open to the public. Traditional Irish food and refreshments are provided by the Holiday Inn and can be ordered a la carte. Irish Tea and Scones will be served at the Irish Quilt Bed Turning Event. Irish Beer and Bacon Flights will begin serving at 5 pm. Email for more information.

The performance activities are partially funded by the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council with an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund. Additional funding was received from the New Ulm Area Foundation, the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau and the Gislason & Hunter Law Firm.
