    A beautiful setting to say the least, our stomping grounds! TEU and Elks Pipes and Drums start the festivities at 4:00, Skibbereen takes the stage at 5:30, bring a folding chair and prepare to have a blast!

    A street party by any other name... This is a fun one with lots of room to mingle, dance and sing along. There are many, many vendors selling all kinds of produce, pasta, flowers, soaps, too much to cover here. Show up at 10 AM and have a ball-take home some fresh food for dinner, too!

    Skibbereen is proud to once again have the privilege of playing at the Farmer's Market, a wonderful gathering of local and regional food (and craft) merchants who sell locally grown produce, mostly organic. We will be at the corner of 4th and Adams (SW corner) and will be playing from 10:00 to 12:00 in the hot, hot sun! Please come on down and bring some cash so you can take home some great tasting foods as well as experiences and the satisfaction that you've supported "the little guys." Thanks to Downtown Springfield, Inc for this ongoing tradition that is free to the public.
