Irish Cultural Society of the Pacific Northwest, sponsor of the Sean-nós NW Festival and Portland Festival of Irish Language and Culture.
These festivals celebrate and promote three aspects of traditional Irish culture: Sean-nós singing, Sean-nós dancing, and Gaeilge (the Irish language). These cultural treasures are incredibly rare to find anywhere outside of Ireland. We aim to sustain a vibrant community for these and other Irish cultural arts throughout the Pacific Northwest.
The Irish Cultural Society of the Pacific Northwest is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Your donations may be tax deductible!
Our festival is our main source of funding and runs entirely on registration fees and donations. All contributions go directly to providing festival and other cultural programming. Our staff don't take any salaries. If you'd like to donate goods or services, please send us a message. We appreciate your support!
