Oireachtas 2018

General Event Information:
-The dates for the event are Friday December 7, Saturday December 8, and Sunday December 9, 2018.
-The location is the same as in 2016 and 2017: Sheraton Toronto Centre, 123 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON, 416-361-1000.
-The schedule will remain the same as in previous years, although the order on the days may change around.  Friday will be solo championships for boys and girls u8-u15 and begin with u8 in one room and u9 in the other; Saturday will be solo championships for boys and girls u16 and older, plus adult team events; and Sunday will be all remaining team events plus premiere competitions.

Hotel Booking Information:
-Reservations will open in late Spring/early Summer.
-One night will be taken as a non-refundable deposit, and the rate will be honored (subject to inventory) until a specific date (to be determined), after which regular rates will apply and there will not be anything the committee can do about this.
-There is no mandate to stay at this hotel, however we need to maximize reservations to benefit from discounts and rebates to off-set the high costs of running this event in a top downtown hotel and to afford and international panel of judges and musicians, among other costs.  Thank you for supporting the event by booking out the host hotel.
