The Iowa Irish Fest Family Fun and Learning Area has amazing kid-friendly entertainment! Children 12 and younger are admitted to the Fest for free with a paid adult admission.

Be sure to visit the Family Fun and Learning Area US Bank stage tent for one of our special workshops. You can learn about the Irish Language and get a lesson on how to play the penny whistle or the bodhrán drum with one of the 2018 Iowa Irish Fest bands! Have some fun learning to céilí dance or listening to one of our storytellers or musical presenters. You also have a chance to meet some of the Bremer County Bucks Rugby Team players and the Trinity Irish Dancers!

There are all kinds of fun crafts and games all weekend long! Come enjoy the inflatables, climbing rock wall or take part in our Family Area Games. Get creative in our craft area or visit with the balloon twister, face painters and hair chalkers.

Have fun in our Archaeological Dig at our old castle ruins and become a Junior Archaeologist or add a leaf to our Irish Language Learning Tree. Go on an adventure around the Fest with our Family Fun & Learning Area Passport challenge! Head out into the Fest grounds and look for the stops to learn something new and stamp your passport! Bring your completed passport back to the Family Fun & Learning Area and you’ll get a special Iowa Irish Fest reward!
