  • featuring Ireland & “Going Greener”
    Saturday, June 27th 10 am to 5 pm
    Sunday, June 28th noon to 5 pm
    $5.00 per adult (includes 1 free herb)
    Kids and Classes are FREE     

    IRELAND is an ancient island, that settled about 8000 B.C. Its title derives from the name of the Celtic goddess `Eriu (in modern Irish `Eire) paired with the addition of the Germanic word “land.” “Eireland” is known for Vikings & Normans, its famous famine and long history of agriculture, coastal mountains and low central plains, bitter rebellions and friendly pubs, Jonathan Swift and James Joyce, “The Chieftains” and “The Dubliners,” cricket and football, Blarney Castle and St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Guinness, ahhhhhhhh Guinness.

    GOING GREENER: Not only will we have lively music, dancing and an Irish Pub, but we’re fully exploiting the green association of Ireland. It’s a celebration of earth friendlier practices from recycling at the fair, to a green roof demonstration and lectures on growing your own green (and red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo and violet) food. 

    FREE WORKSHOPS both days. These are the topics we’re presently kicking around: 
    Irish Soda Bread, Celtic Traditions & Faery Lore, Growing Your Own Food, Bay Leaf: Herb of the Year Traditional Irish Cooking, The Irish Potato, Growing Herbs…..and of course, St. Fiacre, the patron saint of gardening

    LITERARY & STORY TELLING NOOK

    FREE ENTERTAINMENT
    Tentative plans for a Irish Dance Troop, Music and a 
    Scottish Games Demonstration
    PLANT SALE & GARDEN TOURS

    IRISH PUB & GRUB & BAKERY
    Our caterer is always up for the challenge as we change the menu every year to match the theme. Count on variations of the potato: Colcannon (with wild garlic), Champ (mashed with scallions) or Boxty (potato pancakes.) Not sure that she’ll serve a “Dublin Lawyer” (lobster cooked in whiskey & cream) but you can bet on Irish Stew, perhaps Coddle (boiled pork sausages) and a wee bit o’ salmon or cod. Of course we’ll have Irish Soda Bread and other baked goodies. See page 38 for recipes.

    CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DONE EARLY
    Vendors of our fair are required to focus on herbs, gardening, cooking or Ireland for the majority of their product line. We strongly discourage cheap, imported products and crafts represented at all the other fairs. Because of the unique, hand made items, this is where I shop for Christmas!
