Emerald Isle Irish Feile
Name: Emerald Isle Irish Feile
Date: September 6, 2019 - September 8, 2019
Irish Festival Launched on Beaver Island - Celebrate Ireland on America's Emerald Isle! Born from Discover Beaver Island meetings, the official logo was created by an Irish Island descendant of the McDonough clan. The theme of natural born and transplanted Irish citizens celebrating Irish heritage will run continuously through this upcoming celebration of Irish history, music, dancing and old-fashioned Irish fun. Guests and top-notch musicians will arrive by the Emerald Isle Ferry boats or one of two airports to this pristine wilderness of sugar sand beaches, trails and glorious sunsets. The island's own Irish performers will lend a hand to the lineup of incoming musicians and bands, guaranteeing a constant stream of Irish ballads, tunes and drinking songs to accompany an array of planned activities and entertainment venues. The "feile" (festival), a long-awaited comeback, Celtic fair of sorts will surely attract Beaver Island's twin-city relatives from Aranmore Island, Ireland. Come join the party and swing your shamrocks! Confirmed performers: Byrne Brothers, Andro, Finvarra's Wren, Brother Crowe, Milwaukee Currach Club, and Scoil Rince no Bhroanain Dance Group. Activities: Irish arts and crafts, traditional Irish tea, Irish Cultural Center, Irish food, dancing formal and informal.
