2021 Hudson Valley Irish Fest

In a normal year the community-based, not for profit cultural group celebrates the rich Irish-American heritage in the Hudson Valley year-round, culminating with a day of Irish culture at the Peekskill Riverfront.

Dan Dennehy, the organizations’s founding chair, stated: “Back in September we had to cancel the Fest due to Covid. The Home For Christmas Concert brings our talented artists from Ireland and America into homes safely.”

Cathal McGreal, Fest chairman stated: “We plan to resume year-round events, including the 2021 Fest, as soon as its safe to do so. This has been a fun expertise for us all and brought us closer with a little Irish Christmas Spirit.”

The 12th Annual Hudson Valley Irish Fest’s riverside celebration is now planned for Saturday, September 25, 2021. The Fest and Center depend on community support, particularly from the men, women, and families of Peekskill Division 18 Westchester County Hibernians. The Consulate General of Ireland in New York assists the group with an annual grant from the Emigrant Support Program of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
