  1. PATRICK’S WEEKEND, Palace Tavern


PUBDOGS Fri. March 17, 2023


Get Your Irish On With “Spring Rain”

Spring Rain – a Weekend of Interactive Family Activities Celebrating Irish Culture

Submitted by Jeannette Schieck

Mar. 13, 2023 – St. Patrick’s Day is the most familiar day for celebrating Irish culture but beyond green beer and shamrocks, there is so much more!  Spring Rain on May 5 and 6 in Belwood Ontario (near Elora) is an Irish Festival your whole family can enjoy and participate in.

Saturday, at the Belwood Community Hall and community park, the activities include music, crafts, and foods. And, in the afternoon enjoy a showcase of traditional Irish dance and other dance styles influenced by Irish dance.  All activities are FREE and come and go as you wish throughout the day. Instruments and basic instruction are provided to try Uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes), concertina, pennywhistle, bodhran and fiddle.   You can try your hand at rope making, needle felting, carving and other activities.  Learn some Irish phrases and see how living hedge fences and free-standing stone walls are created and much more!  Lunch of Irish foods is available for purchase on site.

Friday evening May 5, an Irish kitchen party -East Coast style is hosted by Gary Faris hailing from Northern Ireland! Bring your instruments and singing voices or come to listen. The evening will be a blur of an impromptu selection of songs (for which the lyrics and chords are projected on the wall) singing, playing, and maybe even a dance or two. Authentic Irish potato soup and soda bread will be served. Admission is by donation.

Saturday evening will feature a ceili dance with a live band. A ceili has a caller and dance patterns somewhat similar to square dancing. The caller provides instruction and then calls out the instructions during the dance so no previous experience is necessary to participate. Tickets are available in advance or at the door.

If you have visited Ireland, have discovered Irish genes in your DNA, or simply want to share a kid-friendly activity filled day/evening with your family or friends, mark May 5/6 on your calendar. For more information check out “Spring Rain – Irish Culture 2023” on Facebook.
