Over 70 vendors and great musical entertainers bringing a taste of the Emerald Isle to Annapolis! Be sure to check out the hotel / ticket combo our host hotel The Westin is offering up!

The Annapolis Irish Festival is committed to giving back to the community that embraces it! The 2014 Annapolis Irish Festival will benefit Hospice of The Chesapeake, The Chesapeake Bay Trust, and The Anne Arundel Medical Center! In just our 4th year we will crush our 5 year goal of giving back $100,000 dollars to local non profits!

Since the Inaugural Festival in 2011, the AIF has become an Annapolis tradition, thanks to the support of the business community and the people who share our passion for the Emerald Isle and the magical Celtic traditions and music we hold so dear. Last year, 32 businesses sponsored this Festival, and $30,000 was donated to local non-profits in our community. We continued our 2-day event with the help of the Maryland Renaissance Festival who again presented our Twilight Concert the night prior.We are back again and still growing. The 2014 Annapolis Irish Festival will take place on Friday, July 11th 2014 and Saturday, July 12th, 2014. This year’s line up will make your heart beat faster and will literally make your hair turn green! A first this coming year – In 2014 we will be going full on festival starting at 4pm on Friday, July 11th featuring 3 stages of entertainment. We have a few other tricks up our sleeve and will be announcing them in the months to come! The 2014 Annapolis Irish Festival will host over 90 vendors, the famous Little Leprechaun Land and will again benefit the Hospice of the Chesapeake, the Anne Arundel County Medical Center, and the Chesapeake Bay Trust. In just our 4th year we will crush our 5 year goal of giving back $100,000 dollars to local non profits!
