Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at the 8th Annual Barrington Celtic Fest This Weekend

The Talk in 60010
March 15, 2018

The 8th Annual Barrington Celtic Fest will take place Friday March 16th & Saturday March 17th at McGonigal's Pub and on the 200 block Park Avenue, just East of South Cook Street - right outside the Pub's front door.

A huge heated festival tent will be erected over the majority of Park Avenue so patrons can enjoy the celebration outdoors without worries about the fickle March weather! The agenda for the weekend includes live music, a mix of local merchants, various entertainment including Irish dancers, bagpipers, special guest appearances, and of course plentiful availability of food and beverages both in the outdoor festival area and the pub.

Details on music, participants and food/drink vendors are listed below. This year we also welcome our next-door-neighbors - Remember Charlotte's - to their first Barrington Celtic Fest. They occupy 205 Park Avenue (formerly The Annex), and since opening mid-May 2017 they've become the premier family style pizzeria in the region! Their space will of course also be available for all patrons throughout the weekend. More info on what they will be offering will be listed below when it's available.

Admission to the festival is FREE all weekend throughout McGonigal’s Pub, Remember Charlotte's and the festival tent!
