Given the recommendations of the City of San Francisco and the State of California, all events in the 2021 Crossroads festival will be virtual.
Irish-Americans possess a rich and diverse history that has greatly influenced the cultural, political, and creative landscapes of the United States and beyond. Irish-American Crossroads recognizes this and is committed to revealing the often hidden histories of the Irish-American experience. Our programs promote Irish-American culture and heritage with a special emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area.
Irish-American Crossroads produces programs year-round. The 18th Annual Irish-American Crossroads Festival takes place in March and early April 2021. The Crossroads Irish Oral History Archive invites Irish & Irish-American men and women to contribute their stories to the first-ever oral history archive, and the Crossroads Salon meets regularly. More information on our programs can be found below.
The Irish-American Crossroads Festival is a literary, musical, and cultural event that takes place every year in the SF Bay Area. Mark your calendars for this year’s online festival that will take place March 6 – April 11, 2021.
