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!

Please check this site frequently for updates and upcoming events.
