Fitchburg Days celebrates Irish Culture @McKee Farms Park


Carnival, music, kids' activities, food & fun!

See entire schedule and line-up here:

Friday - 2008 - Fireworks, Carnival, Food, Music

The festival begins with a BANG! The Fitchburg Days Fireworks Show is a powerful presentation that will be seen and heard throughout the city. Don't forget, all three days will feature carnival rides, and, of course, fantastic food and music in the entertainment tent.

Saturday - 2008 - Irish entertainment, Cultural Tent

The Cultural Tent offers workshops and performances in music, art, dance, and language, all of which showcase the richness of the Irish culture. Ever really wanted to curse at someone! Well, no one does it better than the Irish. Stop by and learn a few Gaelic sayings that are sure to make you feel better. Maybe it's a song or the sweet sound of the Irish harp that will do the trick. The music on hand this year is sure to delight, with many favorite local musicians sharing their talent
and love of Irish music. If kicking up your heels is more your style, you'll have plenty of opportunity to get the heart pumping with workshops in ceili and set dancing. These styles of Irish dance are guaranteed to get you moving and having a great time. If your tastes
run more toward the less physical past times, you'll find lots to do! Visit and try your hand at spinning, weaving, creating a St. Brigid's cross, or locating your ancestors with the help of expert genealogists, learn about the Fitchburg Irish from folks of the Fitchburg Historical
Society, or hear about an archaeological dig in Ireland!

Whatever your interest in Irish traditions, you'll find it at this year's Cultural Tent.

Sunday - 2008 - Latino Day -- Outdoor Games and Wristband Day at the Carnival

The food, games, and music continue! From Noon to 5, all the rides you can ride for $15. Perfect time to bring the kids out! We have three trolley tours of Historic Fitchburg beginning at 11:00 am, a Tug-of-War demonstration at 1:00 pm, and the annual Police Auction at 2:00 pm. (description/text from website)
