Adams County Irish Festival

P.O. Box 3934
Gettysburg, PA 17325


To enrich and enliven the lives of all Irish-Americans in the U.S. (and in particular South Central Pennsylvania) with Irish cultural and historical events past and present. To endear all to the contributions the Irish have made in America. Enlightening all of the 40 million plus Americans of Irish descent through the Adams County Irish Festival featuring; Irish Music, Art, Foods, Celtic Artifacts and living history events.

To this end we wish to establish an Adams County Irish History Museum and Library to research family names and collect artifacts.

We would also like to allow for at least 2 children per year from the north of Ireland to visit Adams County to learn more about religious and political freedom and tolerance. Currently this is being arranged through the Children's Friendship Project for Northern Ireland. Whether local host families are available or not, we help CFPNI to fund transportation costs of Irish teens.

To accomplish this through the Festival, Local, State, National and Private & Corporate Foundation Grants and donations.
