Irish Christmas is coming on Friday, Dec. 4 to the Ellicottville Brewing Company (EBC). For 10 years, it has become an event to remember.
Event organizer Bob McCarthy said, “I love doing Irish Christmas which is a night of Irish magic. I don’t know how the magic gets there, but it just does. That’s the beauty of it.”
The day starts with McCarthy’s wagon parked outside EBC, starting around 7 a.m., where new toys and gifts are collected for Santa’s Workshop, which provides gifts to make Christmas special for less fortunate families.
This year, guests can also enjoy the great Irish specialties and browse the unique handmade Irish furniture, special crafts or the delicious pies which will be the highlight of the auction. Although the auction doesn’t start until 7 p.m., guests start to arrive as early as 4 p.m. to get prime seating for this popular event.
This year, the now-famous pie auction will boast 14 pies, all displayed on beautiful Irish-themed pieces created by McCarthy. The highest bidder for each not only takes home a delicious pie, but also the wooden pie box or other display piece.
The spirit of the season is unmatched in Ellicottville, and Irish Christmas is a perfect opportunity to share it with friends. Don’t miss Irish Christmas on Dec. 4—everyone is sure to leave with both a full heart and stomach!
