The Irish Echo Arts Awards are a unique ceremony born from a desire to salute Irish America’s cultural champions.

During Covid, our awards moved online and raised a glass to the actors and writers, poets and playwrights who kept our spirits high in the hardest of times.

But now we are stepping out lightly with an in-person event in the city which is bold enough to declare itself the Capital of Irish America: Buffalo, New York.

Join us for this exciting and unique celebration of Irish America’s artists in Buffalo on Friday 28 April 2023.

We invite you to nominate those arts and culture heroes from across Irish America. The event will cover : Screen; Visual Arts; Theatre; Literature; Dance; Music; Festivals; Centers.
