St. Patrick’s Irish Festival Celebrates 28 Years


The St. Patrick’s Irish Festival is celebrating its 28th year this weekend on Tipperary Hill.

The main fundraising event for St. Patrick’s Parish promises fun, food and a kid-friendly atmosphere too. It has grown tremendously through the years, with more added annually.

The Mere Mortals, Public House, Tom Dooley Choraliers and many Irish step dancing groups will also be part of the weekend-long festivities.

Plenty of games will be running throughout the festival, with games of chance such as Blackjack and dice games available as well as games for the kids.

Each year, the festival honors special members of the community. This year’s honorees are Don and Mary Sinclair—Mary is a teacher at Most Holy Rosary and a volunteer at St. Patrick’s alongside her husband—and Peter Coleman.

St. Patrick’s Irish Festival runs Friday July 19 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturday July 20 from noon to 11 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Church in Syracuse. For more information, visit and click on the festival tab.
