Irish Festival: Lúnasa at the ICC
The ICC is excited to announce a new Irish cultural festival hosted on the grounds on Saturday, August 25. Lúnasa at the ICC will take place from 12:00 – 7:00 pm, and will be a day of Irish dance, music, and culture. Irish dance exhibitions by the Cassin Academy of Irish Dance and Black Rose Academy of Irish Dance will be featured throughout the day. Activities include dance instruction, learning about Irish culture, kids events, Irish soda bread competition, and Irish vendors.
In the evening, the Celtic roots group Searson will headline the festival. Known for their original music from Canada’s Ottawa Valley, mixed with traditional Celtic, East Coast, and Scottish, Searson is acclaimed for “Giving Canada’s old time sounds a renewal into modern roots…seamlessly blending spirited fiddling, energetic dancing and gorgeous harmonies.”
The festival will take place rain or shine in the outdoor pavilion area on the ICC grounds. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6–12, and free for children 5 and under. Learn more.
