Celebrating its seventh anniversary and fifth year with the grand final day celebration at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site, Irish Fest Camden will be staged on Saturday, March 4, 2023.

The day-long, family friendly event features food and beverage vendors spread through the expansive grounds including an authentic Irish pub featuring Shepherd’s Pie. The Highland Games, a staple of the festival since its start, brings together athletes from throughout the Southeast to compete in such events as the open stone throw, the Braemer Stone throw, the Sheaf and the light and heavy hammer toss have piqued the interest of festival-goers, many of whom are getting their first look at these unique athletic events. New to the festival for 2022 is the Irish sport of hurling, the fastest game on grass, which will be played by teams from throughout the Southeast during the day. Stations featuring soda, water, beer, coffee and Irish coffee, along with a whiskey-tasting event will also be part of the festivities as will a kids’ zone. There will also be other vendors offering a multitude of food and drink options spread throughout the grounds. One of the main attractions of the day is live music and this year, the headliner is Toronto, Canada rock band Enter the Haggis, along with festival favorite Syr and the Byrne Family Band.
