Happy St Patrick's Day!

Jim Nother, President, invites everyone to join with the Irish Benevolent Society in its 145th Annual Celebration of St. Patrick's Day, which will be held, live and in person, on Thursday, March 17th, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We are so excited to be able to proceed with a live event this year, featuring live Irish music, talented Irish dancers and a delicious meal prepared by Western Fair. (They never disappoint.)

Doors will open at 11:00 a.m. and lunch service will begin at 11:45 a.m. Entertainment will be provided by the Goggin Caroll Irish Dancers, Tony Nother, Bob Peel, The Canadian Celtic Choir, Fr John Comiskey, Rev. Matt Martin and Ben Heffernan.

As per current regulations, the event will be at 50% capacity, so there will be plenty of room to physically distance. All safety protocols will be in place, and we must abide by the rules in place at Western Fair District. These rules will be shared at a later date.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone again as we welcome Spring with some toe tapping sing-along tunes.

Unfortunately, it's too late for you to buy a ticket, but you can still join us as we live-stream the event on YouTube.

Special thanks to our sponsors!
