IRISH FOUNTAIN FEST
Are you ready to ShamROCK the Hills at this year’s Irish Fountain Fest at Fountain Park? Don your best St. Patty’s green attire or kill it by rocking a kilt! Enjoy a meal at one of almost a dozen food trucks and grab a pint at the Hensley beer garden. Bring a chair or blanket to relax in the grass, or demonstrate your Celtic dance moves to the sounds of Celtic music and traditional Irish folk dancing. This year’s event features the Kilted Spirit Band, Traveler (a Celtic rock band), and bagpipers.
This FREE family-friendly event includes a kid’s zone where your little leprechauns can run out some of their energy.
Make sure you’re around for the greatest moment of all! The fountain will turn a shamrock green at Noon and at 4:00pm.
March 16 | 11:00am – 6:00pm
