The North Texas Irish Festival (NTIF) invites everyone to come out to Fair Park in Dallas, March 6-8, 2020. The pipes.. the pipes are calling us to join the fun at the 38th annual gathering of Irish food, drink, music, and dance. Wear your green and help celebrate Irish and Celtic culture at the three-day, family-friendly festival.

Sheri Bush, Southwest Celtic Music Association President, said, “We are honored that people choose to bring their families to our festival year after year. Those of us who volunteer for the festival do this out of love for the culture, and because we want to share that with everyone. From our ‘festival family’ to yours, we hope you enjoy this labor of love.”

Fans of rhythmic Irish step dancing (like “Riverdance”) are in for a delightful time at the Irish festival. Dancers of all ages, including some from world championship levels, enthrall audiences with continuous performances on the Tower Building dance stage. Dance workshops encourage visitors to get the Irish spirit at Saturday night’s Dance “Céilí.” The traditional Irish party invites everyone to join in.
