Irish Fair Celebrates 40th Year

The 40th annual Irish Fair of Minnesota, a three-day outdoor celebration of Irish heritage and culture, will be held Friday, Aug. 9 through Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019 on Harriet Island Regional Park in St. Paul.
Each year, more than 650 volunteers come together to make the Irish Fair of Minnesota possible. Event organizers are seeking volunteers for a variety of responsibilities throughout the weekend, including in the following areas: set up/tear down, welcome booth, children’s area, hospitality, and dance tent. Of greatest need is assistance at the food and beverage ticket booths.
One lucky volunteer will win two round-trip tickets to Ireland via Aer Lingus. For each four-hour shift worked, a volunteer will receive one entry into a drawing for the tickets. Volunteers will also receive an Irish Fair t-shirt, beverage tickets, and an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party.
All volunteers must attend one training session: Aug 4, 2pm; Aug 5, 6:30pm; and Aug 6, 6:30pm at the Harriet Island Pavilion (200 Dr Justus Ohage Blvd, St. Paul). Email volunteer coordinator at For information, visit, email, or call 651-645-0221.
