Irish Social and Cultural Events

The Ancient Order of Hibernians will document three Irish social and cultural events held throughout the year in and around Philadelphia: the Irish Immigration Second Day Issuance Stamp Ceremony, The Philly Feis, and the 90th Biennial Pennsylvania State Convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians. The Philly Feis, held at Penn's Landing, is Philadelphia's largest Irish festival, featuring traditional ceili bands plus contemporary Irish music, dance, cooking, and crafts.
