Located on the grounds of the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, the Lowell Irish Festival will feature live Irish music from national and local acts such as Joshua Tree, The Gobshites, Irish Whispa, and a headlining nighttime set from the Young Dubliners; food trucks; craft tents; family activities; Irish heritage events such as WHEN THE IRISH SETTLED IN LOWELL: an exhibit curated by the Lowell Irish Cultural Committee with historic photos, artifacts, & documents about the early Irish community of our city; authentic Irish step dancing – and of course, craft beer and more. 


The day-long event begins at Noon and continues well into the evening, spread out across the main Auditorium stage and two outdoor stages, and will be open to families and groups of all ages, taking its place alongside Winterfest, The Lowell Folk Festival, and the Lowell Southeast Asian Water Festival as the Mill City’s next great cultural event.
