Join us at the Maine Irish Heritage Center on Saturday, February 4th, from 7pm to 9pm for a vibrant evening of dance in celebration of St. Brigid’s Day. Featuring the award-winning Stillson School of Irish Dance, this is an event you will not want to miss. The Stillson Dancers have performed worldwide and are looking forward to debuting brand new choreographed numbers at this celebration!

St. Brigid’s Day/Imbolc marks the first day of spring in Ireland. A day when the Northern Hemisphere sets its eyes on warmer weather and the hope that spring brings. St. Brigid is one of Ireland’s three patron saints and her festival has become a celebration of Irish women. St. Brigid’s roots lie in the ancient Celtic festival of Imbolc, which translates to “in the belly of the lamb.” This references the first stirrings in the earth of the rebirth and renewal of spring. Please join us as we celebrate!
