The Kansas City Irish Fest is committed to: presenting family-friendly entertainment, activities and products; providing opportunities for Irish organizations to promote positive & peaceful causes; perpetuating the study and appreciation of Irish history and genealogy; developing and cultivating opportunities for leadership and volunteerism; deepening a sense of community among Irish Americans and all ethnic groups that contribute to the unique flavor and vitality of the Midwest, and bringing the heart of Ireland to the heart of Kansas City.
Kansas City Irish Fest is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the culture, music, character and history of Ireland and of the Irish people who call Kansas City home. Now planning our 12th year, the Kansas City Irish Fest was born of the merger of two successful, smaller neighborhood events, the Brookside and Westport Irish fests. Located in the heart of Kansas City on beautiful Crown Center Square, KCIF regularly hosts around 100,000 people throughout the weekend. Kansas City Irish Fest is not affiliated with, or a branch of, or managed by any retail or wholesale business, local or otherwise. We are not organized by, operated by or a chapter of any group, union or organization other than our own. KCIF is almost 100% volunteer staffed, and is grateful for the help of nearly 1000 volunteers annually.
