LA CROSSE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Another La Crosse tradition will be returning next weekend after a year on the sidelines.
The 16th annual Irishfest is scheduled to take place from August 13th through the 15th.
Despite some concerns over a recent surge in covid cases across the nation, Irishfest still received the go-ahead from the La Crosse County Health Department.
Pat Stephens, 2021 Irishfest Board of Directors President said, “I think we’re in pretty good shape, obviously we all know things could change, but right now it’s all systems are go and we’ve complied with everything that we have to from the city and the county health department.”
Stephens says Irishfest was granted a special event permit by the city, and extra sanitation stations will be provided to try and mitigate any possible spreading of COVID-19.
