Marty Cahill is the Chairperson of the Syracuse Irish Festival. For the past sixteen years, The Syracuse Irish Festival has been the primary cultural event for the weekend after Labor Day in Syracuse and Central New York. The family-friendly event for all ages has become one of the city’s largest and most popular festivals. We are immensely proud to have been voted “The Best Cultural Festival” in Central New York by the readers of the Syracuse New Times in 2012. 2013, 2014 & 2015! The Festival presents a musically diverse entertainment lineup and cultural experience for over 30,000 each year.
