The Fourth Annual Barrington Celtic Fest is coming up Friday March 14th through Monday, March 17th at McGonigal’s Pub in downtown Barrington.  The large heated party tent will return to the 200 block of Park Avenue to accommodate this festive celebration of all things Irish.

There will be a variety of food vendors, bands and entertainment at this year’s Celtic Fest in both the tent and at McGonigals Pub, 105 S. Cook Street. The headlining bands are Sixteen Candles, performing on Friday, March 14th and American English, performing on Saturday, March 15th.  The Pub’s Annex will allow for even more music & entertainment, more food options, more local and retail merchants, and family-friendly events during the daytime hours…

Post - Celtic Fest LogoThe four-day festival will begin on Friday at 4:00 PM and run all day Saturday, Sunday & St. Patrick’s Day Monday. A huge heated festival tent will be erected over the majority of Park Avenue so patrons can enjoy the celebration outdoors without worries about the fickle March weather!

Festival Tent times are 4 PM – 1 AM Friday, 11 AM – 1 AM Saturday and 11 AM – 8 PM on Sunday. The festival moves fully inside the Pub and The Annex on St. Patrick’s Day.

The agenda for the weekend includes live music, a mix of local retail restaurants and merchants, various entertainment including Irish dancers, bagpipers, special guest appearances, and of course plentiful availability of food and beverages both in the outdoor festival area and the pub.

There will be a one-time nominal admission/donation fee to the Festival Tent (good for the entire weekend), with a portion of these proceeds going towards the American Cancer Society/Relay For Life. There is no charge for children 12 and under, and patrons are allowed into the Festival tent free of charge during the day. There is also no additional charge for entering McGonigal’s Pub or The Annex at any time during the Celtic Fest.

To best accommodate all  patrons during the entire Barrington Celtic Fest, the Pub, Annex and Festival Tent will be 21+ in age after 6 PM. Also, there will be no special seating or reservations of any type taken during either day of the Celtic Fest. Seating will be available in the Pub 2nd level and in The Annex on a first come, first served basis. There will also be tables in the Festival Tent again on a first come, first served basis.
