Great Irish Fair

This weekend, the Great Irish Fair will be taking place at the Coney Island KeySpan Park Parking Lot on Surf Avenue at West 17th. MTA NYC Transit sent out a press release to talk about why you should take mass transit to reach the event:

Plenty of Irish eyes will be smiling at the Coney Island KeySpan Park Parking Lot on Surf Avenue at West 17th Street this weekend for the celebration of the Great Irish Fair. There will be two days of music and fun on both Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The best way to get to the celebration is to take the subway to the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue station. However, please note that on this weekend the Coney-Island bound D trains run on the N line from 36th Street to Stillwell Avenue. Manhattan-bound D service is normal. The Q is replaced by shuttle buses between Prospect Park and Kings Highway and shuttle trains operate between Kings Highway and Stillwell Avenue. F and N service will operate normally in Brooklyn.

The following buses serve the Coney Island-KeySpan Park area: B36, B64, B68, B74, B82, and X28.

Warn folks that there is $12 admission fee ($4 more than last year), which is a bit rich!!! Vendors have been whacked with an increase in rates for their stands as well!!! In this economy, this organization needs to take into consideration that people don’t have much spare money. They would get a better turnout if they kept their admission prices down a bit.
I bought some nice stuff today…. but I will not go back next year as I’m sure the admission fee will probably take a hike to $15 !!!

Admission Price should be lower. The Italian Festival at Hofstra University this weekend is $5.00. I live in Nassau County, so where do you think I’m going? I am of Irish Heritage but money is tight, so I am going where my money is worth more!
