Enjoy a taste of Ireland at Browne's Irish Street Faire (3300 Pennsylvania) today and Saturday.

The festival runs from 6 to 11 p.m. tonight and from 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $8 at the gate Friday and $10 in advance (or $12 at the gate) Saturday.

Tickets cost $50.

Meet your local growers at Cultivate Kansas City's Urban Grown Farms & Gardens Tour. The tour on Saturday and Sunday includes 59 area farms and gardens. It's a self-guided tour, so you can go at your own pace and visit six or shoot for all 60 over the weekend. Tickets cost $8.

Have you ever wondered exactly how many tamales you can eat? Find out at St. John's Mexican Fiesta (1234 Kentucky, Lawrence) tonight and tomorrow. Enjoy tamales, tacos, burritos and tostadas, plus Tejano bands and a carnival on Saturday night. The festival is from 6 to 11:30 p.m. both nights. Admission is free.

VIP tickets are $25, which include a souvenir pint glass and 12 p.m. admission. General-admission tickets, with a 2 p.m. entrance, cost $15.
