An Irish Weekend Tradition
Celebrating 178 years of Irish Tradition with St. Patrick's Church
The Erie Irish Festival was created in 1993 to bring together the Erie Community for a day of Celtic culture and celebration. Initially our home was at the Cauley Center at St. Patrick Church. For the past several years we have been at Rainbow Gardens. In 2014, the festival returned back to our Irish Neighborhood in Downtown Erie! It’s time to celebrate back in front of St. Patrick’s Church again this year!
