Images from Pratie Oaten Irish Festival

The potatoes are dug and it’s time to boil up a pot of “lumpers” to make a batch of everyone’s favourite “Pratie Oaten”: Irish potato oatcakes! 

On September 29, come to Moreston Heritage Village at Grey Roots to take part in the Pratie Oaten Irish Festival! The village will be full of delicious food, costumed interpreters, live music, and entertainment. Enjoy music and storytelling, a cross cut saw competition, and make sure to check out the 4H Club Potato Auction! Samples of Pratie Oaten will be available throughout the day in the Log Cabin.

Musical guests include: Jim, Ann and Dan McGee, Scatter the Cats, Anne Lederman and Guest, Fiddlefern Country Dancers and Glowan.

Don’t miss this fun tribute to the early Irish settlers in Grey County!

It's easy to halve the potato where there's love.
