Savannah, GA — The Savannah Irish Festival has been working diligently for the last 18-months to plan the 2022 Festival scheduled for Saturday, February 5, 2022. The Committee has held multiple events at various locations to raise money to help offset the costs to pay for the Festival. Unfortunately, these events were not as lucrative in raising money as the Committee had hoped.
The Savannah Irish Festival Committee understands how COVID-19 impacted both local and national businesses and has thus affected sponsorships and donations the Committee has relied on in the past to create an Irish Festival that encompasses Irish culture, music, dance, and food.
Regrettably, due to these factors, as well as the poor communication from the venue, The Savannah Irish Festival Committee Officers have made the difficult decision to forgo the 2022 Irish Festival. Over the course of the next year, The Savannah Irish Festival Committee plans to rebuild, and rebrand so the 2023 Savannah Irish Festival will be a success.
The Savannah Irish Festival Committee hopes that during our hiatus; our partners, sponsors, and attendees within the Savannah community, and beyond, are able to recover from the financial loses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Savannah Irish Festival Committee looks forward to gathering again in 2023.
Go Raibh Maith Agat,
The Savannah Irish Festival Committee
