Arizona Irish Festival Celebrates Ireland Ancient and Modern
http://festival.azirish.org/

(March 24, 2006—Phoenix, AZ) The Sixth Annual Arizona Irish Festival is coming to the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix on Saturday, October 28, 2006. The Festival celebrates historic and modern Ireland and commemorates the Irish in America and all over the world.

The traditional stone buildings at the Center, including a replica of a County Clare cottage, provide the backdrop for the Festival. Stage performances will feature traditional ballads and Irish rock ‘n’ roll; storytelling and genuine blarney; and the powerful dancing style that made Riverdance famous. A series of presentations on history, literature, genealogy, and traditional Irish crafts and industry will illustrate the Ireland of yesterday and today.

Hance Park will become an Irish field where visitors can enjoy ancient kings, modern princesses, real pubs and festival grub. Shoppers can purchase trendy Celtic fashion, fine art, CDs, and instruments to make their own music. Those seeking their Irish roots can consult a knowledgeable genealogist. Adults and children are welcome to wear Halloween costumes in celebration of the October 31 holiday that once marked the end of summer for the ancient Celts. A silent auction will offer unique prizes to the bold bidder with good timing, and the winner of the raffle at the end of the day will find tickets to Ireland in his or her hand. Special entertainment will be announced at a later date.

The Arizona Irish Festival is directed by members of E.R.I.N. (Executive Resources for Irish Networking) in association with the Irish Cultural and Learning Foundation, a 501©3 not-for-profit corporation. All proceeds of the Festival will benefit the Irish Cultural Center and its ongoing activities.

The Irish Cultural Center is the year-round home for Celtic music, language, and dancing classes; Irish literature and film; touring musicians and actors; and First Friday art exhibits. For more information about the Sixth Annual Arizona Irish Festival, please contact James Weber at 602-308-4601, e-mail [email protected], or Web site www.azirishfestival.org.
