One of the things that makes America so special is the blending of cultures that have mixed together to make a truly one-of-a-kind country. Two of the largest and most influential groups that have impacted American society are peoples of Italian and Irish descent. With the 15th Annual Irish Italian International Festival in North Myrtle Beach, you can learn about and enjoy all the unique aspects of these rich cultures, from food to music to unique arts and crafts.
Taking place on Saturday, September 29th, the Irish Italian International Festival will welcome expected crowds of over 15,000 to the Main Street area of North Myrtle Beach. The festival is a rain or shine event from 10 AM that morning to 4 PM that afternoon. As guests enter the festival grounds, the air will be fragrant with the scents of delicious Italian and Irish specialties offered by some of the area’s most popular restaurants and food vendors.
