From North New York to Illinois the Irish American community are kicking off the summer festival season in style with a sensational line up of events. Good Irish traditional, as well as more modern acts, arts and crafts, food, theatre and more are just some of the treasures in store this May.

What better way is there to spend a weekend at the beginning of summer than basking in the summer sun, enjoying a family day out and soaking in some music, theatre and even storytelling at some of these top-notch events.
