Prove it! Tug of War is a competitive sport in which two teams pull at opposite ends of a rope until one drags the other over a central line in a test of strength.

The Boston Irish Festival will hold its first-annual Tug of War contest on Saturday June 8th and Sunday June 9th. The competition begins on Saturday at 4pm, with the top four teams advancing to the semi-finals and finals held Sunday at 4pm.

Team members may dress as a team representing a particular club, organization, or business. Appropriate footwear must be worn, no spikes or steel capped boots allowed.

Come out to cheer on your favorite team of 8 as they dig in their heels for a chance at the Tug of War trophy along with bragging rights, or grab your seven of your toughest friends and sign up yourselves!
