Virtual St. Patrick’s Day

WELCOME!

Welcome to our Virtual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration! For St. Patrick’s Day 2021, since we couldn’t hold our usual in-person event, we decided to put together a virtual event! Here you’ll find an abundance of videos from numerous local Irish dancers, singers, and musicians. We are so lucky to be surrounded by so much incredible talent. Irish culture is alive and well here in Oregon!
