About the event

We are bringing you a night of great craic in a typical Irish Halloween fashion with toe-tapping tunes by The Gaes, uproarius storytelling by Jonathan Lynn Recitationist ( and a chance to FINALLY get out for a couple of dances with the Grand River Ceili band.  Our caller will walk you through the steps and you can dance away with your group in your own special area.  Kennedy's Tavern will be on-site for your imbibing pleasure and snacks and IRL merch will be available.  

This event will take place in the outdoor covered area of the Kitchener Market so please dress accordingly.  Costumes highly encouraged! On-site heaters and a wee jig will take the edge off the night air!

To fully enjoy the ceili dancing gather a group (max. 6), give it a name and then enjoy the night together in your own sectioned off area!  

Tickets are on a sliding scale and please choose according to what you can afford to pay to support local talent and culture.
