The family-friendly feis (pron.

The renowned Irish band has performed on some of Ireland's most prestigious TV programs and a variety of festivals across America and Europe. Following the tremendous success of their debut album "Notes At Liberty", they were recipients to two awards for "Best New Group" and "Best New Comer". FullSet will grace the stage at Tara Feis followed by Savannah's other talented performances.

The festival is held each year in the beautiful Emmet Park located in the heart of downtown Savannah. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. with an official Irish opening ceremony.  For more information call 912-651-6417. This event is a free, non-alcoholic event geared towards families and children.
