Celebrate the green of summer Irish style! Drink tasty brews, eat authentic food, and dance a jig to live Irish music at Charlotte's first ever Irish Summer Festival. They'll be plenty of vendors selling Celtic and Irish crafts amidst Gaelic football, a hurling exhibition, a corn hole tournament, and Irish dance performances. Come early for kids activities, or stay late for performances by The Wolfe Tones' Derek Warfield and Vertigo, a world famous U2 cover band. Noon-until. Outside Connolly's Irish Pub, 115 E. 5th St. www.charlotteirishsummerfestival.com.
