Irish dance hits Utah’s Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees 

It isn’t officially the Christmas Season until the Festival of Trees starts in Salt Lake City. The festival celebrates it’s 41st year this December, and Rinceoiri Don Spraoi Irish Dancers can’t wait to join in the celebration!

The festival benefits Primary Children’s Medical Center, by offering decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, gingerbread houses, and the like, for auction.
Choral and dancing groups, orchestras and instrumentalists, perform each day. Entertainment is ongoing, to really enhance the festive mood. As in years past, Rinceoiri will be donating their time and talent to this great cause.

Join us Friday, December 2, 2011 at 8:15 p.m. on the South Stage for a celebration of Irish dance and culture; as Rinceoiri Don Spraoi Irish Dancers entertain with a mix of traditional and contemporary numbers. Rinceoiri will be joined on stage by Shillelagh, our favorite local Celtic band.
