Dublin Irish Days FAQ


1😷 Your safety is our priority!
The Dublin Irish Days event was designed to allow for greater physical distancing than the traditional Dublin Irish Festival. Dublin Irish Days event organizers follow COVID-19 recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Franklin County Public Health.

At this time, Franklin County has been ranked a substantial transmission area by the CDC. That means masks are recommended indoors and in crowded areas regardless of vaccination status. Franklin County Public Health has also issued a mask advisory until further notice recommending everyone wear a mask indoors and in crowded areas regardless of vaccine status to stop the spread of COVD-19 and the Delta variant.

Dublin Irish Days organizers are taking extra steps to ensure the health of patrons and staff, including physically distancing our events in three locations throughout the City. You will also see additional signage promoting face coverings, vaccinations, distancing and hand-washing.

Safety Recommendations

Dublin Irish Days asks patrons to please consider the following recommendations to keep this a safe and healthy event:
  • Vaccinated and not vaccinated patrons are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering while indoors and in crowded spaces (both indoors and outdoors).
  • The City will provide masks and hand sanitizer at event venues based on supply.
  • Practice physical distancing from people who do not live in your household.
  • If you are sick, please stay home. Monitor your health before you attend the event.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water or use alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
We appreciate your help in slowing the spread of COVID-19.
