Friends, Sponsors and Vendors-
After much discussion, monitoring and studying the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation, the members of the board have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Dubuque Irish Hooley. The decision was made to help mitigate the growing challenges of significant planning and upfront logistics required to execute a successful & safe Hooley.
Beyond the challenges of COVID-19, the 2020 Hooley faced challenges of competing local events & safe travel of our Irish Bands. We feel with all of these factors coming into play it will be concerning for large group gatherings to be able to come together safely in August. Your health and welfare are our number one priority, and we want to play our part in keeping everyone safe.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact us at: Irishhooley@outlook.com
We will miss seeing you all celebrate Irish culture with us, but look forward to returning to the historic Star Brewery Stone Cliff Winery, Saturday August 28th 2021.
