30th Annual Tignish Irish Moss Festival
Jun 20, 2010 - Jul 1, 2010
Location: Tignish

This year is the 30th Anniversary of the Irish Moss Festival.  In 1981 community Chairperson Ann Marie Perry, spearheaded the first Irish Moss Festival to raise money for the Arena.  30 years later the Irish Moss Festival is still giving back to the non-profit organizations within the community.  The schedule for the Anniversary year is packed with fun for the whole family.  For the 30th Anniversary the 29 previous Miss Irish Moss Queens, or their Runner-Up will be in attendance for the Opening Ceremonies, the parade, and the crowning of Miss Irish Moss.  We hope to see you all there!
