Main Tent

Since its inception in 1988, the Main Tent has been the showcase of
premier talent from Ireland as well as America.  Over the years we have hosted
The Clancy Brothers, Eileen Ivers, Goats Don’t Shave, The
Elders,
and The Saw Doctors just to name a few.  Like a magnet, every
year The Lenihan School of Irish Dance draws people from all over the field to
overflowing for a spectacular display of Irish dance at its best. On Sunday, at the
close of the festival, many of our entertainers return together for the traditional
Festival All Star jam session where anything can happen with the Alumnae Dancers
joining in the fun.  The Main Tent is the place to be for nonstop entertainment,
family fun and dancing, dancing, dancing for everyone!
