Irish Step Dancing
Live Art Demonstration

Find yourself magically transported to a quaint Irish pub! The McGovern Ceili Dancers will provide a thrilling all-ages demonstration of Irish dance and stepping. The McGovern Ceili Dancers were founded in June of 1999 and have gone from 6 dancers meeting one night a week to over 80 dancers and 4 locations in Ohio and Indiana. We are comprised of female and male dancers whose ages range from 4 to adults. The McGovern Ceili Dancers philosophy is that while Irish dance is a vigorous and demanding form of dance, it can be experienced in an atmosphere that is relaxed, supportive and most importantly, fun. Our mission is to provide exceptional Irish dance instruction for Beginner through Championship levels. We strive to develop the self-esteem, confidence, and Irish dance skills of each dancer in a positive, nurturing environment where all of our students can reach their full potential. We work to instill a sense of unity and friendship among our students and their families through a variety of Irish cultural events and opportunities.
Saturday, June 15 at 11 pm, join us for the biggest booms around town!

Thanks to AMG Alerts, TASTE organizers will use a color coded text alert system to keep attendees informed if the weather gets hairy.
The TASTE of Tippecanoe is a rain or shine event, but operations have had to be suspended in the past because of lightning or wind. However, operations have also safely resumed after these occurrences. You’re using your hard-earned money to gain admission to the TASTE and help the Tippecanoe Arts Federation Grow the Arts. We want to make it more-than-worth your while.
Whether you’re at the TASTE, on your way to the TASTE, or on the fence about attending… STAY INFORMED.

Access to the TASTE of Tippecanoe will be limited to Downtown Lafayette
Due to construction, the John T Meyers Pedestrian Bridge (that links Lafayette and West Lafayette *for folks on foot*) will be closed for the TASTE.
There will not be access to the TASTE from the bridge and it will not be available as a place to view the 2015 FIREWORKS.
Please plan to access the TASTE from one of our 4 Gates in Downtown Lafayette.
It is free to park in the City of Lafayette and Tippecanoe County Parking Garages (where indicated) and, of course, on the street.
