OCTOBER 14, 15 & 16, 2011

The Weston Irish Festival opens it’s gates Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, October 14, 15 and 16 at O’Malley’s Pub & Courtyard. Great Irish music, piping, dancing, and storytelling, along with traditional Irish food and drinks are what you’ll find at the three-day event.

The festival features musicians from across the U.S., Canada and Ireland. Seventeen local, regional, and national touring acts will perform on the open-air courtyard stage as well as the two indoor pub stages. A fourth stage, adjacent to the courtyard stage, will showcase the pipers and dancers.

The aroma of authentic Irish dishes – corned beef, Irish stew, bangers, and coddle will fill the air along with traditional festival favorites – pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, nachos, loaded baked potatoes, apple fritters and more. A full complement of draught ale, stout and lager will be available along with other libations.

IOU

This isn’t an all day event but-it’s worth looking at on your way somewhere else–

Towering over visitors at a height of almost seven stories, IOU/USA is comprised of 105 multi-colored steel shipping containers, stacked seven high and fifteen across. The containers will be used as mosaic tesserae, with ‘I O U’ spelled out on one side of the massive structure, and ‘U S A’ on the other. IOU/USA is a temporary public monument in Penn Valley/Memorial Hill Park, open 24 hours . At Grand Arts, New Cornucopia will feature a single shipping container with its contents spilling out into the gallery space. Harkening back to Flemish still life paintings of the 17th century, New Cornucopia offers a revised vision of plentitude and decay for our era of globalized trade. Opening Reception: Friday, September 2nd, 6-9pm, at Grand Arts and Memorial Hill Park. Free shuttle service will be provided between these sites throughout the evening.

Admission: FREE
