The Maine Irish Heritage Center’s Annual “Best of All Things Irish in Maine” celebration returns this year with a slightly new look! Taking place on Saturday, November 18th, this year’s festivities will feature two concerts by some amazing performers.

Upstairs in our historic sanctuary, the delightful Friel Sisters from Donegal will captivate the audience with a blend of fiddle, flute, and uilleann pipes. Downstairs, we will have performances by past Best of All Things Irish in Maine winners, including Bitter Brew, followed by an encore performance by the incredible Slane, Maine’s premiere U2 Cover Band.

In addition to fantastic performances, the evening will also include delicious local food trucks and our annual craft beer fest, where we choose The Best Irish Beers of Maine. Some of Maine’s best breweries will showcase their Irish-style beers, with attendees voting for the winners who will be announced at the end of the evening.

This is our major fundraising event for 2023. All proceeds will support our mission to preserve our historic landmark and to keep Maine’s Irish heritage flourishing. Head to now to learn more and find a ticket option that is right for you!
