I am finishing my preparations for Kansas City Irish Fest this weekend.  I'm practicing my presentations daily- especially the one for the kids' stage.  I am hoping for a lot of crowd participation or I may be running quite short!  Please do let me know if you will be at KC Irish Fest- I would love to meet you over a pint to talk Ireland!

If you want to come hear me speak- I can lure you with sióg pingin (faerie coins)- I will be on the Childrens' Stage at 3 pm Saturday and 3:15 pm Sunday as well as on the Heritage Stage at 4pm Saturday.

Never been to Kansas City Irish Fest?  Oh, it's quite the party- and one worth coming to.  Irish party band Gaelic Storm will be performing Friday and Saturday night, there are great kids areas scattered throughout the grounds, lots of shopping, music, food and craic!

Are you curious about the cows? Kansas City is often called “Cowtown” because, back when cattle roamed the range and cowboys “drove” cattle instead of ATVs, many of those herds ended their journey in Kansas City before becoming a juicy steak.

I have a post over at Family Rambling that may answer all your Kansas City Irish Fest questions.

Not able to make it to KC Irish Fest but want to see the bands?  You're in luck, because the fest will be streaming- LIVE- from both the Boulevard and Miller Lite stages all weekend!  You'll be able to watch the Kansas City Irish Fest live stream here beginning at 5pm Friday.

And if your mouth is watering for a bit of fresh baked Brown Bread, a bit of Steak & Guinness Pie or spectacular Car Bomb Cupcakes you'll definitely want my new ebook Favorite Irish Recipes.  (Visit by Monday, September 5 to enter to win a limited edition 8×8 hardbound copy!)

Hope to see you at Kansas City Irish Fest!


  1. […] days home my 5 year old daughter asked to share one of the posters I used for my presentation at Kansas City Irish Fest and the remaining sióg pingin (faerie coins) with her […]

    I will be in KC for the festival I hope to see you there. I went last year and loved it. Now anytime I meet someone looking for something fun in KC I always tell them to see Irish Fest.
