HARTSDALE, N.Y. – A daylong salute to the traditions of Ireland is in store at the annual Irish Heritage Day Celebration on Sunday from 1-6 p.m. at Ridge Road Park in Hartsdale.
The event is part of a series of cultural heritage festivals held in a variety of county parks on weekends throughout the summer.
“It is often said that everyone is ‘Irish on St. Patrick’s Day,’ and the same is true at Irish Heritage festival,” said County Executive Rob Astorino. “Residents will have the opportunity to be immersed in the music, dance and art of the Irish culture.”
Mass begins at noon on the stage. Entertainment includes the Tara Gold Band, Ian Gallagher, the McLean Avenue Band, a bagpipe band performance and the Deirdre O’Mara School of Irish Dancers.
There will be many vendors on-site where festivalgoers can shop for arts, crafts, jewelry, clothing and more. Activities for children include games and Westchester County’s fitness center-on-wheels, the Fit-Mobile.
Admission is $5 per adult. Children younger than 14 are admitted free. Parking is free. Seating is informal, so bring blankets or chairs for seating on the lawn. The festival will be held rain or shine. No coolers will be allowed.
