Raglan Road’s Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival brings the craic

Craic (pronounced “crack”) is an Irish word that means fun, enjoyment, or good times, and that’s exactly what you’ll find – along with great food and music – during the four-day, all-day Raglan Road Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival at Disney Springs.

One day is simply not enough time to properly celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, so Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant is celebrating before, during, and after the Irish holiday with “the most authentic Irish festival in America” from March 16 through March 19, 2023.

“The Mighty Festival has earned its reputation as the best Irish hospitality experience in America,” says pub co-owner John Cooke. “Our festival is for everyone — bring the family and enjoy good times together. “You won’t find Irish talent like this anywhere else in the U.S. on St. Patrick’s Day.”

Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival Entertainment

The craic includes notable Irish bands flown in just for the occasion:
