(pronounced fay-la) :: an Irish word meaning festival or feast day
Féile Parkfeild aims to highlight the importance of multiculturalism by providing an authentic insight into the cross-pollination of Irish and American cultures, in a traditional American hamlet.
This festival will be an eclectic mixture of both Irish and American music sessions, poetry, storytelling, and food, along with Gaelic sports, workshops, local craft beer, trail rides, tours and much more!
Tickets for the 2nd annual Féile Parkfield are available for a suggested donation of $50 for the weekend or $25 for a day.
Any donations are so appreciated and will go back into funding the Féile Parkfield magic and supporting it’s artists.
Experience irish & american traditional music in it’s natural habitat
There are few experiences as special as a traditional session. An informal gathering, where musicians come together to celebrate their shared love of the music, the session is the way the music has been enjoyed for generations. Féile Parkfield 2019 we will try to capture that magic, featuring sessions hosted by up and coming musicians from both sides of the pond. We encourage any musicians to bring along their instruments to participate in the celebration!

With a population of just 18 people, this tiny ranching community, nestled in the Cholame Valley, exemplifies the real American West as it has existed since the first Irish immigrants made their way to America. This "Cowboy Side of California" is conveniently located between Los Angeles and San Francisco, just a four hour drive from either city, and is home to Parkfield Bluegrass Festival, Parkfield Rodeo, horseback riding groups, and now Féile Parkfield.
Celebrate this St. Patrick's Day in the beauty of California's Central Coast, surrounded by
music, food, nature, culture, and, of course, a few beers.
