Join the IMDA for Give to the Max Day, November 19th!

Each year, the Irish Music and Dance Association partners with Landmark Center to present a family-friendly celebration of St. Patrick's Day.  In a typical year, this event fills Historic Landmark Center with the very best of traditional Irish music and dance on four stages and provides a showcase for our wonderful local musicians and dancers.  The Irish Music and Dance Association also hosts a Day of Irish Dance at Landmark Center as part of the Sundays at Landmark series.  Day of Irish Dance allows more than 700 Irish dancers to share their passion.

The Pandemic has interrupted this nearly 40 year tradition, as IMDA's St. Patrick's Irish Celebration could not be held in person in either 2020 or 2021.  Through the magic of technology, IMDA was able to present a virtual celebration in both years but it's not really the same as gathering in person and hearing the beautiful space filled with Irish music and hearing those dancers' feet.

Give to the Max proceeds in 2021 will help IMDA rebuild our budget and plan for a return to Landmark Center on St. Patrick's Day 2022!  

Will you lend a hand this year?
