Boston Irish Festival FEIS
Hosted by Harney Academy of Irish Dance
Saturday, June 8
8:30am and continuing all day
The Boston Irish Festival is delighted to announce its partnership with Liam Harney of Harney Academy of Irish Dance to launch a Feis at the 2013 Boston Irish Festival. A Feis is an Irish dance competition that is as delightful to participate in as to watch. We welcome participants young and old, novice or experienced. And if you love to watch Irish dance, then this is the perfect place! We’ll have 5 stages of non-stop Irish dance all day Saturday, June 8 beginning at 8:30am.
The Boston Irish Festival Feis is registered, sanctioned and governed by rules of An Coimisiun, North American Feis Commission & the New England Region Pat Watkins, President NAFC.
After all entries are received a schedule will be provided. This will allow the schedule to be as accurate as possible. We plan to keep the entry to a minimum for our first year so don’t wait to send in your registration.
