Like so many other events in 2020, the large crowds and flooded space are just not going to be manageable. That’s why the board of directors for KC’s Irish Fest have made the decision to convert the event into three days of much smaller experiences, centered around local Irish restaurants and the like. No announcements have been made with further details on those plans.

The board of directors said, “True to our Irish heritage, we’re a resilient bunch. Our festival leadership is hard at work finding new ways to bring the soul of Ireland to the heart of America over Labor Day weekend. As Kansas City begins to reopen throughout the coming weeks and months, we will be reimagining our 18th Irish Fest as a series of smaller, Irish-themed, locally-focused community experiences in order to provide a safe and healthy environment for our patrons.”

We will update you as we get further information on the new, reimagined event.
