About

The Koroit Irish Festival celebrates the region’s rich Irish heritage.

The theme of the 2022 Koroit Irish Festival is: Koroit Irish Immigration #2 and the amazing tales of modern-day immigration. One of these is the 2022 Koroit Irish Festival Ambassador Leeanne Parkinson. Irish-born-and bred, Leeanne is now a Koroit and District local of note and she will play a big part in the 2022 festival.

The event is held annually in April in the historic village of Koroit – a 10 minute drive from Port Fairy. Highlights include the Gaelic games carnival – including a full-scale Gaelic football match, the Australian Danny Boy Championships, market stalls and food vendors.

Plus there are more musicians than you can shake a sheleighly at, with ditties ranging from traditional Irish folk right through to shamrock ‘n’ roll.

While there is always great music, song, comedy and dance at the festival, there are also a wide range of other activities that make the Koroit Irish Festival unique and a weekend of fun unmatched anywhere out of Ireland herself.

Why not get the family together and make the Koroit Irish Festival your annual Family Reunion weekend and book in for some family fun.
