Society Gathering for March 2024

We will have a report on the success of this year’s Games as one of the main topics at a regular Society gathering to be held on Thursday 28 March at the Irish Cultural Center, 1106 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix.

Those who come along will also be able to test their knowledge of the ‘old country’ in a specially devised Scottish quiz. Prizes will be on offer as an incentive to win, although of course it’s all about taking part.

Doors will be open at 6.30pm with the proceedings kicking off at 7pm. A licensed bar will be provided. Let’s aim for a good turnout.

March in the St. Patrick's Day Parade

The Caledonian Society is marching at the annual St Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday 16 March. So come along, join in, and celebrate the special day of our Irish cousins.

We gather at 8:30am at the north-east corner of North 3rd Street and East Oak Street (near Monterrey Park) and the marchers then walk down Central Avenue to Hance Park and the Irish Cultural Center, where the St Patrick’s Day Faire will run from 10am to 5pm.

Dubbed the ‘Greenest Day in the Desert’, the Faire is a feast of Irish culture with good food and great music. It is always a colourful and fun affair. Free parking is available at 1850 N Central Avenue, and a free shuttle bus will take people to Hance Park for the Faire.
