An Ri Ra Montana Irish Festival

August 12, 13 & 14, 2022

Butte, Montana

The MGCS and the An Ri Ra Executive Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 festival. With uncertainties with international travel and financial hardships from Covid, we feel our best move is to keep working and be ready for a stellar comeback in 2022. The festival takes an immense amount of volunteer time and financial investment to produce each year. We understand the disappointment this decision will bring, but please know that no one is more disappointed then the Executive Committee who has produced this event since the beginning in 2002.

Located at the Original Mine Yard

The An Rí Rá Montana Irish Festival is a celebration of the Irish heritage and contribution to the people of Montana. This festival has created its place as a world-class event that draws people from not only Montana, but across the United States and internationally. The An Rí Rá is regarded as one of the best Irish festivals in North America.

Be prepared with your lawn chair and umbrella for this beautiful outdoor Montana event.

We will be having two of the above water bottle refilling stations at this years festival.  Bottled water will still be sold, but with all the waste and plastic involved we would like to see these used extensively. We will also have An Ri Ra water bottles for sale.
