In accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health’s COVID-19 recommendations, The Celtic Junction building has temporarily closed. Thank you for your support and for helping us to keep our community safe and healthy.

Irish Resident Partners

Since its founding, CJAC has collaborated with three independent organizations who reside within The Celtic Junction building: O'Shea Irish Dance, Center for Irish Music, and Irish Fair of Minnesota. CJAC would not be the same without their partnership and collaboration!


CJAC is supported by grants, corporations, and community donors.


CJAC is supported, in part, by Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Emigrant Support Programme.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
