SUPPORT THE GDICC AND GDICF!

Please continue to support the Greater Danbury Irish Cultural Center and Foundation by renewing your membership or making a donation payable to the GDICF, to support the Foundation and Center as we weather the continued effects of the pandemic!   Help keep Irish culture alive in the Greater Danbury community! Any size donation is greatly appreciated – consider donating an amount equivalent to what you would spend for dinner and drinks a few nights a month at the Center!  You may either bring in your donation when the GDICC is open, or send your check, payable to GDICF, at 6 Lake Avenue, Danbury, CT 06810. Thank you so much for your support!

The purpose of the GDICF is to establish a permanent place in the Danbury community dedicated to preserving the cultural influences and historical contributions of the Irish people who emigrated to this country and in particular to the Danbury area. Centered by the motto “Tradition, Pride, Friendship and Community”, the Greater Danbury Cultural Foundation (and the Greater Danbury Irish Cultural Center) will be a place where the Irish language, music and dance can be taught to young and old alike: Irish books and history may be collected and shared: and Irish Craic (camaraderie) may be enjoyed.

Get excited about your Irish heritage or explore Irish culture at the GDICC and through its activities!

Or give us a call at 203-739-0010!

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!
