Tulsa's Irish Community

In building this festival, we have uncovered a thriving, passionate, and fun Irish community right here in Tulsa! Tulsa is billowing with ways in which to celebrate and participate in Irish culture and heritage. Did you know that we have a world renowned James Joyce collection at Tulsa University, an altruistic Celtic group that supports Veterans, and a growing Irish-American Club of Tulsa? Did you know that the Irish make up the second largest ethic group in Oklahoma, or that the Choctaws demonstrated a remarkable act of kindness toward the Irish during the famine? Those are just a few things we've learned and we cannot wait to share with you so much more at Tulsa IrishFest 2024!
