An Irish Fest Actually on St. Paddy's Day!

The 10th annual Indianapolis Downtown Irish Fest takes place right when it should – on Saturday, 17 March: St. Patrick’s Day. (The Germans know when to schedule a party!)

Hosted by the Rathskeller in the historic Athenaeum/Das Deutsche Haus, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis, the festivities begin at 11 a.m. with entertainment from Brian Cunningham & the Irish Aires followed by the Irish Dancers of Indianapolis.

At 5 p.m. the Gordon Pipers take the stage with Polka Boy following at 6 p.m. End the night with all your favorite cover hits performed by Brenda Williams and The Soul Providers starting at 9 p.m.

Admission is free, but you’ll have to pay for your vittles and drinks (of course). Enjoy authentic Irish food including corned beef & cabbage, Irish red potatoes, Irish stew, soda bisquits and shamrock cookies. Drink specials will also be available all day long.
