‘The Great Irish Hooley’ Music Festival
is returning to Raglan Road in Disney Springs for its 8th year on Labor Day weekend!
What’s an Irish Hooley you ask? Well, it’s an Irish social celebration that combines music ranging from traditional to rock with fun entertainment for the entire family! And guess what…there’s no cover charge!
These rockin’ happenings will take place from August 30 through September 2. The events kick off mid-day and last into the wee hours of the night.
Get ready for colorful folk, blues, traditional Irish, Celt grass, and soul music along with Irish dancing and Celtic face-painting. You may even have the opportunity to learn a few traditional Irish steps yourself — no experience necessary!!
Entertainment will take place inside and outside of the pub. Bands will play outside on the pub’s patio stage while The Grand Room stage inside will feature incredible music and choreography.
