Festival Description

The Boston Irish Festival takes place annually and was originally known as “Irish Connections”—a traditional/roots and contemporary music and Irish cultural festival. The Irish Cultural Centre of New England hosts the festival in Canton, Massachusetts—only 25 minutes south of Boston.

2007 marked a re-launch and re-design of the Festival to reflect the new cultural directions of Ireland and its Diaspora. After centuries of economic difficulty and emigration, Ireland, in these early years of the 21st century, finds itself one of the most prosperous countries in the world, socially forward-thinking and increasingly diverse. This festival will celebrate the old and the new, traditional and contemporary, classic with avant-garde, how music is enjoyed in Ireland and how it is enjoyed throughout the world in the Irish style—friendly, welcoming, adventurous and spirited.
