Buffalo Irish Festival

Tax deductible
The Buffalo Irish Festival needs your help! Donate today to help make sure this beloved Western New York tradition continues for years to come.

Plans are in place for this year's festival to take place July 28-30, 2023 at the Lakeside Lawn on Buffalo's Outer Harbor. But help is needed from the community to get us to the finish line.

The not-for-profit Irish Cultural & Folk Arts Association of WNY Inc. (ICFAA) and the Gaelic American Athletic Association of Buffalo NY Inc. (GAAA) have taken ownership of the festival. Now run by an all-volunteer group, all money raised for the Buffalo Irish Festival will be put into the event. After expenses are paid, any remaining proceeds will be used to plan for future Buffalo Irish Festivals and/or other events managed by the ICFAA and GAAA to promote Irish culture and heritage in Western New York. 

Every dollar of your support will go directly toward covering festival expenses, helping to pay for the venue, supplies, permits, security, entertainment fees, and other necessary costs. We need your help to create a culturally expansive showcase for all ages of Irish music, dance, sports, genealogy, language, historical displays, and more.
There are several ways you can help!
1. Donate any amount you can, and we will thank you from the bottom of our Celtic hearts.
2. Challenge your friends and family to match your donation!
