The Irish American Festival is Sunday, June 7.

The PECO Multicultural Series at Penn's Landing aims to bring cultures from all over the world into Philadelphia. This season they kick it all off with the Irish American Festival Sunday, June 7.

Held in the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing, the festival will include Irish musicians, performances by Irish dance schools, bagpipers and traditional food. Authentic Irish goods -- think traditional apparel and crafts -- will be for sale on location.

The free, family-friendly festival is a great way to get in touch with your roots if you're one of Philly's many Irish American residents, or to learn about a new culture.
