Dublin Irish Festival

Dublin Irish Festival 2018

The Dublin Irish Festival is the largest three-day Irish Festival in the world. Literally nowhere on the planet will you find a bigger, better celebration of Irish dance, food, culture, and art than right here in Central Ohio! The festival is held in Coffman Park, and fills the park from end to end with Irish culture, arts, and entertainment. There’s even a Sunday church service and breakfast to be had. This is one of our community’s most treasured events, and it honors the spirit of Dublin, Ohio as well as our Irish immigrant history here. Come join us to celebrate the Irish in all of us!

This year, the festival runs from August 3, 4 & 5, and tickets are available for pre-purchase online for a discount, and at the festival gates.
