While the city of Dublin won’t hold the Dublin Irish Festival this summer to prioritize health and safety, smaller, city-wide celebrations will take place Aug. 5-8, according to a release.
“We are excited about hosting events in person this summer,” said Dublin Community Events Director Alison LeRoy in a prepared statement. “While things will not be exactly the same as in years past, we are working hard to keep our community safe, while giving people the opportunity to get out and have fun.”
The first event, the Dublin Irish Festival 5K and Dub Crawl, will take place Aug. 5 in Downtown Dublin. Live concerts featuring top Irish musicians will be held at Coffman Park, and the play “The Irish and How They Got That Way” will be held at the Coffman Park Amphitheater.
