Welcome to the 12th Annual Big Apple Feis & Fleadh
2020 Feis Date - Saturday, March 28, 2020 (Postponed see below)
Dear Irish Dance, Music & Cultural Community,
On behalf of the organizing committee for the Big Apple Feis & Fleadh and USG Performing Arts we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the support we have received. The Marriott team has been supportive and caring. We thank all our judges, tabulators, musicians, competitors, teachers, vendors, volunteers, stage crew, chairlady, organizations, scholarship sponsors and all the families that have been part of the Big Apple Feis & Fleadh family for the last 11 years. Our success was because we are Blessed to have all of you. We love this venue for our event and I know all our participants enjoy the experience of it as well.
We have seen allot of ups & downs through the years, but nothing like what is happening by the minute around us. May God Keep us all safe. Let’s all say a prayer 🙏, look out for one another and take care of each other.
In lieu of the health warnings issued for the City of New York,
and last night the President is taking action to stem the spread of the coronavirus by suspending travel from Europe to the United States for 30 days, beginning on Friday.
The organizing committee has postponed the Big Apple Feis & Fleadh until a later date. Of course, your feis entry fees will be honored. We were told all hotel rooms can be cancelled within 72hrs of the date of arrival and air travel will be either honored for future plans or refunded when you speak to a customer service rep. We are currently monitoring the situation and, with the help of the Region & Hotel we are looking for alternate dates. If you have any concerns please feel free to reach out.
You are our 1st priority, our children are our future, please take care and stay safe. These are difficult times for everyone, but by listening to and implementing any instructions implemented by the various government agencies and the World Health Authorities, we will all get through this.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. Looking forward to seeing you all in the near future and celebrating our cultural heritage on the crossroads of the world, Fr Duffy’s Square, Times Square NYC.
As my mom used to say: Chin up don’t look back and pray.
All my love,
Take care of our future,
Unateresa Gormley TCRG
