Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the Maine Irish Heritage Center as we throw open our doors for an afternoon of live music, great food, family fun activities, a cash bar, and more!

Festivities will begin at the MIHC following the Commercial Street St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday, March 17th. (The parade itself will kick off at noon on Commercial Street.)

Our friends from Plot Twist Pretzels, Fred’s Fried, Cheese the Day, and Maine-ly Meatballs will be on site to satisfy your craving!

Performances from the Stillson School of Irish Dance and Will Woodson and Caitlin Finley will be sure to keep you in the Irish spirit!

Family fun activities will be available, including a special visit from St. Patrick himself!

Guests will also have the opportunity to check out our library, learn about our Genealogy resources, and visit the historic sanctuary built brick-by-brick by Irish hands in the late 1800s.

We look forward to celebrating Maine’s vibrant Irish heritage with you!
