ArtsQuest is proud to present Sláinte, a celebration of Irish heritage Thurs., March 17 through Sun., March 20. This new four-day experience is being produced in partnership with Bethlehem’s Donegal Square/McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub.

Fiddles and whiskey will take center stage for four days during this festival focused on the music and traditions of the Emerald Isle. With several bands coming over from Ireland and traditional food and whiskey pairings supervised by Neville Gardner, owner and operator of Donegal Square/McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar, Sláinte will be an immersive experience taking the usual St. Patrick’s Day festivities to the next level.

Tickets for individual days and events, including VIP single malt whiskey tastings and a Sunday Irish Breakfast, will go on sale in the coming weeks. The festival, taking place at SteelStacks on the SouthSide of Bethlehem, will also feature a fiddle competition and musical performances.

Bands currently confirmed include: Lunasa, The Jeremiahs, Glengarry Bhoys, Poor Man's Gambit, and Fig for a Kiss. The full lineup of bands and festivities will be released soon.

Festival passes are on sale now on for $79 for ArtsQuest members and $99 for the public. These festival passes include admission to all musical performances. Single day passes and tickets to VIP food and whiskey events will be released soon.
