Celebrating Irish culture and heritage In New Jersey since 1971.
The Festival is held on the grounds of Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport where we host our annual Human Horse Race. This unique event raises thousands of dollars for local charities in NJ.
Join us for a great day that starts with a Catholic Mass followed by live music on multiple stages, piping & drumming competitions with massed bands, performances by local step-dancing schools , a variety of vendors with Irish crafts, jewelry and merchandise…and of course the Human Horse Race.
