The 38th Annual Great American Irish Fair and Music Fest once again takes over Oak Canyon Park this Fathers Day weekend, transforming the recreational area into a tiny Emerald Isle. 15 Irish bands are scheduled to play—including Dublin 4, The Dublin City Ramblers, and local boys The Fenians—as well as more than a thousand dancers (yes, seriously) competing traditional Irish steps. And there's also the typical Irish awesomeness: bagpipers, wolfhounds, sheep-herding, a red-haired and freckle-faced kids contest, an Irish flag parade, celtic dancing, and a continuous flow of both beer and Irish festival food. Whether you're Irish or not, all are welcome to come celebrate the culture of Ireland—and party like a true Irishman. Lucky you!
