FESTIVAL FEVER: The Irish 2000 Summer Fun-Raiser

As you may remember, some mighty torrential rain storms soaked the annual Irish 2000 Music & Arts Festival at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds last September, and organizers took a bath.

So they weighed their options, and came up with a unique plan – what better way to raise funds for a festival than to host another festival?

The one-day-only Irish 2000 Summer Fun-Raiser will be held at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds in Ballston Spa from 12noon-7pm on Saturday, June 6, featuring a batch of local and regional fave Celtic bands. Tickets are $10, available online in advance, as well as at the gate; children aged 10 years and under are free.

Here’s the schedule of performances for the Irish 2000 Summer Fun-Raiser:

12noon: The Brothers Flynn
1:30pm: Frank Jaklitsch & Friends
3pm: The McKrells
4:30pm: Get Up Jack
6pm: Emish
