The 46th annual Irish Festival will return to Monmouth Park this Sunday, June 12. Enjoy a beautiful day of live racing highlighted by Irish step dancing, crafters, food, and a pipe and drum competition. Three different stages throughout the park will host music from the Emerald Isle all day long.  

Patrons will also get a chance to enjoy the fan-favorite Human Horse Race, where runners will break from the gate in a sprint on Monmouth’s main track for charity, each in his or her own saddle cloth.

Monmouth Park’s Family Fun Day will continue as well with face painting, pony rides, and a bounce house in the picnic area. 

The day kicks off early with a special Irish Mass at 11 a.m. on the Grandstand’s paddock side, first floor.  Gates will open on Sunday at 10 a.m., with first post slated at 12:50 p.m.
