Irish fever is upon us once again. Yes, it’s that time of year – time to head to the Outer Harbor to celebrate the 2018 Buffalo Irish Festival. This is the third year in a row that the festival is being held at the Outer Harbor – a waterfront location that has proved to be the perfect spot to host such a massive undertaking.

This year’s festival will include:

  • A kick-off parade featuring flags from the 32 counties in Ireland on Friday at 5:00pm. Admission is FREE on Friday from 4pm until 5:30pm
  • Traditional Irish music, folk music, step and set-dancing
  • Genealogy experts (they say that during the festival, everyone is Irish – you can find out if that is indeed true
  • Exclusively Irish goods and crafts from nearly 30 individual vendors
  • Irish authors and book signings
  • Traditional Irish foods and beverages

This three-day affair has become a crown favorite for thousands of Buffalonians who just can’t wait until Saint Patrick’s Day to show their Irish pride.
