The City Of Hoboken presents
2nd Annual Hoboken Irish Festival
Wednesday March 13, 3-10pm
Food and Beverages by Anthony David’s
Mayor Dawn Zimmer and the City of Hoboken present a new St Patrick’s celebratory tradition, the Hoboken Irish Festival, scheduled for Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 3:00 to 10:00pm in Sinatra Park at 4th Street and Sinatra Drive.
Admission to the Festival is free. It will feature live performances by The Prodigals, Gold n’Brown, Will O’Connor, Colin Nisbet, the Jersey City Firefighters Pipe Band and more. There will be activities for entire family: step dancing, face painting, crafts, and a demo by the Hoboken Hurling Club. Acclaimed Hoboken Chef Anthony Pino and the Anthony David’s team will make festival goers’ dining choices extra special his year. Chef Pino’s On The Flipside burger shack will be present with its sizzling grills. This burger stand was a hit at the uptown Hoboken Family Farmers’ Market, and will bring a first taste of warm weather to the fest. Anthony David’s is also thrilled to be offering an eternal Irish classic at a special Fish n’ Chips station. And in the spirit of the holiday, Chef Pino’s wine bar Bin 14 will be wheeling in the beers: a beer trailer will serve Guinness, Harp and Smithwick’s.
“As longtime Hoboken residents and businesspeople, we are really excited to be contributing our efforts to this fun, family event,” says Chef Pino. “We will be sharing a portion of our proceeds with the Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund, be cause it’s important to remember that some of our neighbors are still feeling the effects of Sandy, and they need our help.”
