Newport Waterfront Irish Festival


Thursday, 01st Sept, 2011

The 14th Annual Newport Waterfront Irish Festival is a three-day celebration of all things Irish.


Kick up your heels to traditional Irish step-dance, comedy routines, and the spirited sounds of nonstop Irish music, including Eileen Ivers, The Town Pants, The Makem & Spain Brothers, The Screaming Orphans, Calley McGrane & The Exiles, Dermott Henry, Black 47 and many more.

New this year – The Waterfront Snug! Popularized in 19th-century Irish pubs, a Snug is an intimate private haven set apart from the bustle of public areas, where patrons can kick back with close friends and a frosty pint.

Takes place Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 3-5, at Newport Yachting Center, 4 Commercial Wharf, Newport, R.I.

Visit or call (401) 846-1600 for tickets and more information.
