A Celebration at the Capital: Irish Fortitude and the American Spirit

Loading Events

Mark your calendars for the annual Irish Gala at the Capital Grille and The Celtic on Market in downtown Denver. This year Aer Lingus is our title sponsor and will be donating round trip tickets to Ireland!

This annual INCO fundraiser continues to support the Leadville Irish miners’ memorial honoring the thousands of Irish immigrants buried there. This is our 6th gala in support of the memorial.

The format for the Gala is the following:

  • 3:30pm – Cocktails and Memorial presentation at The Celtic on Market
  • 4:30pm – Cocktails at the Capital Grille
  • 5-7pm – Dinner at the Capital Grille
  • 7:30pm – Return to The Celtic on Market for more Craic

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the memorial located in Evergreen Cemetery Leadville, you have missed a beautiful tribute. The Catholic-Free section of the cemetery has approximately 1300 unmarked and sunken graves dating from the late 1800’s, most belonging to Irish immigrants, many of whom were miners who died as a result of their terrible working and living conditions. The memorial tells the history of this Irish community and also memorializes those buried there, placing their lives into a larger context that represents the story of Irish immigrants throughout the Rocky Mountain mining region in the 19th century.

The Capital Grille and the pedestrianized Larimer Square are a perfect backdrop for the 2024 black-tie event celebrating the Irish in Colorado and the stories that built America.
