The people in Central New York, specifically the patrons, volunteers and committee members of the Great American Irish Festival bring this passion to another level! When we go there, it is like going home.

We are not only welcomed with open arms, we are welcomed in to the homes and hearts of these people. We are gifted with cookies, photo's of first born, stories of family and friends and a welcome one would experience when visiting the homeland after a long absence! We love it!
The welcome and the appreciation is second to none!
Thank you GAIF for the years of friendship, hospitality and memories that we will never forget!
