The event keeps getting bigger and bigger every year. While there are no specific details about the full schedule of the cultural festival, we do know that the weekend will be filled to the brim with Irish music and performances.

Last year, some festival-goers could partake in some whiskey tasting classes along with some other cultural events.

Some favorites will be returning for the 2022 festival. Screaming Orphans and Red Hot Chili Pipers are just a few of the major acts that will be coming to Waterloo come August.

Check out the full list of the performers below and what days they will be taking to the stage. A few groups/singers will only be performing on one day of the festival. Many of our favorites will be in Waterloo for the entire weekend.
