The New Jersey Irish Festival is ready to return in a big way, celebrating its 50th anniversary on Sunday, June 5 writes Ilana Keller for My Central Jersey.
The state’s largest Irish heritage celebration has been on pause due to COVID-19. It draws around 15,000 participants each year, organizers say.
The event is set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport.
There will be Irish and Celtic craft, jewelry and merchandise vendors; pipe and drum competitions; Irish step-dancing demonstrations; live music; plenty of food; and a drinks garden with specialty cocktails by Bunratty Fine Drinks. Find out more here.
