St. Patrick’s Day Parade


St. Patricks Day Parade

Save the date. It’s almost time for one of the biggest events of the year. It’s the Freedom First St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Shamrock Festival, and it’ll be in downtown Roanoke on March 16. The festivities will kick off at 10 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. Get the details and make your plans. You do not want to miss this event.

Shamrock Festival

The Shamrock Festival will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. That’s an earlier start than last year, and you know what that means. You’ll have plenty of time to engage in some St. Patrick’s Day fun.

Admission is free to the festival and that’s unbelievable when you consider everything it has to offer. The live music and adult beverages make it easy to get in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. A new band or DJ will hit the stage every hour or so, so you will get to hear all kinds of great music.

Freedom First Kids Zone

What if you have kids? They might not appreciate music and beer, but they’ll love the kids’ zone. It’s open from noon to 5 p.m., and it’ll have all the things your kids love. They can play some games, jump on the inflatables, and get their faces painted. They will have the time of their lives, and since admission is free, they can play all day.
