KC Irish Fest returns to Crown Center this Labor Day weekend featuring live music on seven stages.

Irish Fest raises the bar for a huge weekend in Downtown

More than 150 of the top Irish entertainers, performers, and dancers in the world will be featured across seven different entertainment stages during Kansas City Irish Fest this Labor Day weekend at Crown Center.

Dedicated to promoting the culture, music, character, and history of Ireland and of the Irish people who call Kansas City home. KC Irish Fest offers attendees the chance to see some of the top Irish entertainment in the world. But there’s so much more to do here beyond listening to music! After all, the festival is dedicated to bringing the heart of Ireland to the Heart of America, and that means everything from Irish culture to shops, beverages, food and activities using Irish themes and traditions. Let’s get this party started!

The inaugural KC Market Days celebration is set for Ilus Davis Park on Friday and Saturday.
