Event Tickets

The Irish Fair is of Minnesota is a free event and requires no tickets! However, we do have a few ticketed events throughout the year.

Kickoff Party!

Thursday, August 9 | 7-10pm

Irish Fair of Minnesota invites you to our Kickoff Party, which will feature FINNEGANS beer sampling and a Celtic music showcase! When you attend the Kickoff Party, you will experience firsthand the excitement of the start of our Fair! Also, get exclusive access to our fairgrounds on Harriet Island before it opens to the public! The Kickoff Party is Thursday, August 9th from 7:00pm-10:00pm at the Pub Tent.

There will be a selection of FINNEGANS beer available and people will be able to sample some of their new brews! This is the perfect opportunity to taste all the new beers that you have been dying to try! But, don’t worry once you find your favorites you can fill up a larger cup (as many times as you desire)!

Our showcase will feature some of the best local Celtic bands, and you get to hear them all play during the span of just one night! We will have SisterTree, Tom Dahill & Ginny Johnson, The HiBs, The Eddies, Leslie Rich, The Tim Malloys, The Northerly Gales, and Release The Craicen all play a short set! We will also have some Irish dancing! 

Tickets cost $30 in advance ($40 at the door). There are also designated driver/under 21 tickets available, which are only $15! All FINNEGANS beer sampling and larger beer servings are free with purchase of your ticket!

Have you always wanted to include finishing a race on your list of life accomplishments? Have you always wanted to win first place? If you have a deep yearning to complete these goals, then the Irish Fair of Minnesota’s Zero K is the activity this summer you can’t miss out on doing!

The Zero K start point to end point is only three meters in length. It may not be long, but this in no way detracts from its genuine race-like feel! And we believe everyone who has the stamina to walk, run, jog, or hop the three meters distance deserves to win first place!

All first place winners receive a limited edition, exclusive, Zero K t-shirt. These t-shirts are highly sought after, and as always will feature our signature cartoon couch potato. After participating in the race, hydrate the winner in you by claiming your free ice cold FINNEGANS!

Registration for the race is open! Qualifying requirements: a good sense of humor and the desire to get your very own Zero K t-shirt! Sign up by yourself, with your kids, or with a team!

The Zero K will be held Saturday, August 11th and Sunday, August 12th at 2 p.m. on the sports field. Register in advance for only $20 or procrastinate right up to the day of the run and pay $30 at the Zero K registration tent!

T-Shirts are unisex and range from small to 3XL. There will also be water and soda available for those who want a non-alcoholic beverage option, or for those under 21 years of age!
