Irish Festival

The 7TH Annual Newtown Irish Festival was a huge success! We can't thank you, our sponsors, our local community, our new found friends that came from afar!  ​What are people whom attended and participated in the Festival saying?

I always love coming to the green parrot! My favorite is the staff! They are so accommodating, hard working, knowledgeable and friendly. The Irish Festival around St. Patrick's day is one of my favorite weekends of the year. As someone who grew up in Newtown, it's so nice to have an event that really brings the community together in such a fun, family-friendly way. My parents are Newtown residents still and they also love the event. I think it's really a great thing for Newtown to get so much exposure to benefit the town we love. The Irish dancers, the face painting for the kids and the 5k race are all fun features to be enjoyed. I can't wait for next year's festival and I really hope Newtown continues to support the Green Parrot in all that they do for our residents, our town, and local charities.​

Kudos to another awesome weekend at the Green Parrot. Great tradition in Newtown that gets better every year. Wonderful family event that included face-painting, ballon art, and the Irish Dancers. Very well organized. Great music, NCAA basketball on TV, and great people. Thanks to the staff and ownership for another successful Irish Festival..

-Rhiannon Abrahamsen- 3/27 
The green parrot is definitely the best bar in the area. Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere. The Irish festival is a blast! Awesome live music and Irish dancers and a family friendly environment during the day. This year was the second year I've been able to attend the festival and I plan to attend for years to come!​

What a great weekend at the Irish Festival. My company had the honor and pleasure to supply the tent and other equipment.  Bob Lutz and his team put so much emphasis in making the Irish Festival into both an exciting and safe experience. The entertainment that was brought in was absolutely amazing.  The staff (owners, managers, servers, waitresses, door men etc...) worked endlessly over the weekend to keep everything running smoothly. They really are an "A Class" crew from to...p to bottom.

I find solace in our community's ability to host such a great event that SO MANY people both near and far came to enjoy. From the young Irish dancers to the 5k for charity that they host, Bob Lutz makes sure that this event gives back to others.

Great job! I look forward to many more successful and exciting events!

Bob Lutz and his crew did an exceptional job taking care of us, the food was great, and the communication was personal and over and beyond anything that I expected.  Bob's philosophy on customer service is well know and easily apparent in the behavior and attitude of his staff. I was happy and very surprised to see this, especially in today's fast paced world. It couldn't have been a better experience.
