Irish Fest Camden

The 3rd annual Irish Fest Camden will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Park at 222 Broad Street in Camden. The family-friendly cultural event attracts over 2000 visitors with its live Irish music, dancing, vendors, food, domestic and import beer, a Leprechaun parade, and a KIDZ zone. The Leprechaun parade will begin at 10:30 am. Children are invited to dress in their finest leprechaun attire and join the athletes, animals and other participants. The Opening Ceremony will follow. Returning for the third year is Columbia's Celtic folk rock band, SYR ("sire"). Taking inspiration from Celtic history and myth, SYR creates original songs with themes like battle, love, loss, heritage...and a large pint. Also returning are musicians Trip Rogers of Charlotte, Bothar Tombfield of Camden, and Casey O'Reilly of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Several athletic events will be held throughout the day including the Highland Games and Heavy Event competition, and exhibition games by the USC Gamecock Quidditch team. Visitors will have an opportunity to personally experience an aspect of Irish culture by joining in short, informal, cricket games that American cricket player and teacher Tom Melville will be conducting. The games will be run on a continuous walk-up basis and are open to all. So come and discover what "play ball" means to the Irish! Adults $10, children 2-12 $5, ages 1 and under free. For more information and full schedule of events, visit www.irishfestcamden.com. Proceeds benefit Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church of Camden. Other events include "Irish Authors Reading and Open Mic Night" on Thursday Feb 28 and "Irish Fest Camden PUB CRAWL" on Friday March 1. For more information visit https://www.irishfestcamden.com.
