Colorado Irish Festival – July 12-14, 2013

Driving to Littleton the other morning on my way to breakfast, I saw a sign advertising the 19th annual Colorado Irish Festival coming up this Friday through Sunday in Clement Park, Littleton, CO. Back in Michigan, there were two Irish Music Festivals that we made sure to attend every year – the music is so wonderful, the beer is always flowin’, and it’s a great way to hang out with family / friends! So of course, immediate reaction: I’m going.

I checked out the site to see what to expect. Tickets range in price, and this late in the game, can either be bought at a local King Soopers, or at the gate. The tickets at King Soopers will be a bit lower in price, and save you from having to wait in line at the gate. For ticket pricing for each day, click here to be taken to the ticket info through Colorado Irish Festival’s site. There is even a VIP ticket option that gives you special viewing access to the main stage, snacks, and private bar (to name a few benefits). The festival opens Friday night, with FREE admission from 5 – 6 pm, and closes at 10 pm. Saturday, the Festival will be open from 10 am – 10 pm, and Sunday is open from 10 am to 7 pm. Scared of the parking situation? No worries – parking is free at Columbine High School, with shuttles available to bring you and your family to and from the Festival. For more info regarding what’s allowed on the premises, what bands are playing, and where to be at what time, click on the map to the left.

Kids 12 and under are in FREE with adult, so this is a perfect opportunity to get outside with the kids, and enjoy some good Irish fun! Even if attending for one of the three days, I think the ticket prices are well worth the experience!

Hope the festival kicked off right today – looking forward to stopping by tomorrow!
