The County Sumner Irish Festival is a fantastic event held in March at Bledsoe’s Fort Historical Park in Castalian Springs, Tennessee. The park is home to an authentic Irish cottage built by Hugh Rogan in the late 1790s as well as a historic trail that runs alongside a settler cemetery and remnants of a 19th-century spring house.

Live Irish music is sure to have you dancing and toe-tapping! Food and fun create the perfect festive celebration! The event also includes guided hikes, storytelling, craft beer from Half Batch Brewing, historic house tours, food trucks including Delaney’s Street Eats, Mobile Meat Sweats BBQ, Moosic City Ice Cream, Ms. Emmett’s Legendary Kitchen, and Tennessee Tater Cakes, shopping vendors, kids activities, and more! The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club will also play two exhibition games that are included with admission.
Wear your favorite Irish-themed attire to participate in the Costume Contest (including dogs) where prizes will be given away!
