The theme for Irish Fest 2016 is Kickin’ It Irish Style! Festivities for the annual family friendly event will provide a weekend of fun for all ages. For a complete schedule of events including times and locations, click here!

Lawler Irish Fest is proud to present the second edition in what will be a series of five historical books of Lawler’s rich history. “Main and Grove,” A Pictorial History of the Businesses of Lawler, Iowa will be available at the Hardware Building & Merchandise tent during the fest. If you enjoyed last year’s edition, you’re going to love this year’s book. Book two covers our community from the beginning through today. Each book comes with a large historical map from 1915, which is suitable for framing. This map is from the Sunburn Co., and is used in the book to reference the businesses in Lawler, both past and present. You can use the map to take yourself on a self guided walking tour of Lawler businesses. This edition has 88 pages of Lawler history and over 220 photos. If you didn’t get book one, you can still pick up a copy during the fest this year. (limited) Only $20.00 per book. A great keepsake for you and all your family members!
