Children’s Petting Zoo and Free Pony Rides

Petting ZooA petting zoo (often called, or part of, a “children’s zoo”) features a combination of domestic animals and some wild species that are docile enough to touch and feed. In addition to independent petting zoos, also called children’s farms or petting farms, many general zoos contain a petting zoo.

Food and Refreshments

Children’s Entertainment Tent

Children's Entertainment TentChicago Gaelic Park prides ourselves in being a family oriented festival and so we have many activities geared not only for the kids but for the entire family. Irish culture and just plain fun abounds for the family in storytelling, dance, plays and music. Magic shows have been known to astound even the most skeptical observers.

Irish Tea Room

Irish Tea RoomThe Tea Room, one of Chicago Gaelic Park’s most praised places over the Irish Fest Weekend, extends a Cead Mile Failte to all and offers friendly and flexible service to all festival patrons with hot Irish tea served throughout the day and evening. Located near the entrance of the festival grounds with its own authentic signage, the Irish Tea Room evokes the best of old and contemporary Ireland in a comfortable and simple setting. This is a lovely spot for a quick break and a sit down; to sit back and catch up with friends. But good home baking has always been their big thing, including soda bread and some desserts, of course, delicious freshly-baked scones, and sold with a perfect pot of hot Irish tea. Hot coffee is also available. We had one couple who met here and became engaged so you never know; this is where you might meet the love of your life….stop by for a cuppa tea!!!
