Come enjoy this Irish celebration - Kansas Style

For over 30 years, the community of Rush Center has invited you to “Come be Irish for the day!” Join us and see why we say, “There are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were.”

Enjoy a variety of local food vendors, games, Bingo, and live entertainment in a festive family atmosphere. Be sure to try our homemade Irish Stew and all the fixins.

THANK YOU for making our 35th Year one of the best yet. See you next year!
