Ware Rd.) at McAllen Convention Center, with gorgeous facilities, an on-site restaurant and bar, a discounted room rate for visitors, and plentiful parking close to all the amenities. There will be a vendor market, featured dishes and drinks, whiskey tasting, all-day entertainment, pop-up exhibits, and family activities.

The fest also incorporates a traditional music session as an after-party- a social gathering of musicians, dancers, and spectators playing together in a relaxed setting. This exciting after-party session will also take place at the hotel, so it's truly a one-stop shop. This is a family-friendly, free event for the entire community taking place both indoors and outdoors.

STXIF is organized by McAllen Irish Arts and has grown significantly each year. This fest is a fiscally sponsored project by Fractured Atlas. Consider donating to this entirely free community event to ensure the continued expansion of world-class performances, exciting exhibits and tastings, and inclusive facilities for families, artists, vendors, and above all making memories.
