The Maine Irish Heritage Center is hosting the fourth Annual “Best of All Things Irish in Maine” awards, which will take place on Saturday, November 18th. This is our major fundraising event for 2023, and all proceeds will support our mission to keep the Irish arts rich and flourishing in Maine. In addition to fantastic bands, singers, and performers, we will also choose The Best Irish Beers of Maine. Maine breweries will showcase their best Irish-style beers, and attendees will vote for the winners, who will be announced at the end of the evening. On our lower level, we’ll have Bitter Brew playing from 5 – 6 PM, followed by “Best of all Things Irish in Maine” winners from past years on our Unplugged stage. You’ll feel like you’re in an Irish pub but can enjoy the Best Irish Beers in Maine and vote for your favorites. At 8PM, Slane will take the stage for an encore performance of their extensive repertoire of U2 hits.

The Best of All Things Irish will be held at the Maine Heritage Center on the corner of State and Gray Streets in Portland, and an iconic landmark of the Portland skyline. Rarely open in the evenings to the public, it will be a fantastic venue to celebrate the best Irish-inspired music, food, and beer.

The live show and Irish craft beer fest will be on Saturday, Nov 18th, from 6 pm to 9 pm. The VIP Happy Hour will kick off the evening at 5 pm.

Many of Portland’s best food trucks with food options will be stationed on Gray Street, right outside the front doors.

This is a 21+ event.
