Iowa Irish Fest - Veridian


Iowa Irish Fest


Discounted weekend passes available for Irish Fest!

Iowa Irish Fest, presented by Veridian Credit Union, is a three-day festival in downtown Waterloo that celebrates Irish culture. This annual tradition started 12 years ago in the parking lot of Jameson’s Public House and has grown into one of the largest Irish festivals in the nation.

Mark August 3-5 on your calendar. You can listen and dance to the live music played on six different stages. The lineup features new entertainers and many of the favorites, including Gaelic Storm, the Dublin City Ramblers, the Screaming Orphans and the Trinity Irish Dancers.

Also, check out the cultural activities. Stop by the cultural tent, family fun area, Highland Games, High Nelly Bike Race, ShamRock and Run 5K, rugby tournament, whiskey tasting, Celtic Cruise Motorcycle Ride, Sunday Mass and more.

Stop in before July 31 to purchase your three-day pass for just $16 each, a 20% savings from the gate admission price of $20 per pass. Children, age 12 and under, get in free.
