Event Details

The 39th Annual North Texas Irish Festival will celebrate the long, rich tradition of Irish and Celtic culture through a modern medium: the internet. The all-new virtual festival will include the music, dance, cultural and culinary activities that are the hallmarks of one of the country’s largest and most well-respected cultural festivals. On Saturday, March 6, fans of the festival can enjoy six channels of Celtic culture live on NTIF.org from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.

“This new format allows us to bring the festival to our fans in a way we have never done before,” said Sheri Bush, president of the Southwest Celtic Music Association Inc., the non-profit organization that produces the North Texas Irish Festival and provides music and dance scholarships to local students. “While we respect the need to socially distance, we know that viewers will feel close to the performances of these talented artists we will showcase.”

For the first time in festival history, Ireland is streaming performances to Texas! On March 6, viewers will be able to watch the “Live from Ireland” channel on NTIF.org with special band performances from the Emerald Isle. From 12 - 6 p.m. the channel features seven bands and dance performances from County Donegal Ireland. Then, from 6 – 9:30 p.m., the Live from Ireland channel of the North Texas Irish Festival will feature performances from bands ZoDoMo and Altan.

Music
The heart and soul of the North Texas Irish Festival is the music. This year, the many different stages festival-goers typically enjoy will now be virtual, allowing viewers to see a wide variety of styles at the click of a mouse on one of the many different channels.
