Irish Hooley

  • Share:
Name: Irish Hooley
Date: August 24, 2013
Time: 11:30 AM - 10:30 PM CDT
Event Description:
For generations, the highlight of Irish social life was the Hooley. Music, dance, song, good conversation and merriment flowed freely as described in the Percy French song, "There's a Hooley on in Hannigan's House Tonight." We hope you'll join us to celebrate our Irish heritage at the 2013 Irish Hooley in the Alliant Amphitheater at the Dubuque Star Brewery, Port of Dubuque, Iowa. May the luck of the Irish be with you.

Since moving to the Port location, the Hooley has exploded into a huge day-long celebration of all things Irish. Enjoy a day of music, food, Irish dancing and cultural exhibits and stay for the evening when the party is thrown into high-gear featuring Celtic rock by international acts Skerryvore, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers and the return of Gaelic Storm. Don't you dare miss it!
