Eastern States Exposition, Lúnasa Feis
August 29, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
The Irish Cultural Center of Western New England, along with the Black Rose Academy of Irish Dance and Cassin Academy of Irish Dance, presents the ICC’s Lúnasa Feis on Sunday, August 29, 2021. We are excited to welcome dancers back after last year’s necessary hiatus. We have a new location this year! This Irish dance competition will take place rain or shine at Gate 1 on the grounds of the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA.
Plenty of parking and facilities will be available. The Feis will run from approximately 9 am – 4 pm. A food truck, Storrowton Tavern and the Beer Garden will be open for food and drinks. Bakers can enter an Irish soda bread competition at the Feis.
The Irish word Lúnasa (LOO-nuh-suh) is traditionally used to describe an ancient Irish festival celebrating the beginning of the harvest season and the end of the summer months.
