They will be onsite, will have compost bins, and will ensure everything goes into the right place as well as educate the public on what can be composted. For 2024 we are requiring all vendors to use compostable serving supplies for ALL food vendor operations. Compostable supplies have become relatively commonplace and there are a wide variety of product offerings at comparable prices to other paper goods.

The Kansas City Irish Festival, the fastest growing Irish festival in America, has an outstanding reputation among participants and visitors, attracting over 80,000 people annually. We showcase two dozen world class acts on five main stages, Irish heritage exhibits, fabulous traditional food, children’s activities, and an Irish Marketplace. Two hotels on site sell out over 2000 hotel nights over the weekend. This juried festival is open to all emerging and established artists. While we are looking to add to the cultural climate of a Celtic Festival, we are not limited to Celtic themed art.
