Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Austin’s biggest, most festive, family-friendly Irish celebration — the 16th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Austin Fest presented by the Celtic Cultural Center of Texas. Held this year on Thursday, March 17 from 3-9 p.m. at Pioneer Farms, you’ll find a commitment to authentic Irish culture with live music, dancers, cloggers, horse & carriage rides, games & face-painting for kids, traditional food and beer. You won’t find leprechauns at this party, but you’ll certainly feel the luck of the Irish.
Entertainment line-up is packed with music, dancing and fun from 3-9 p.m. Click here to view the full schedule of events.
No festival is complete without an amazing menu of food and beverages. You can count on Fish n Chips, Irish Po’Boys, Corned Beef & Cabbage and Irish beers on tap including Guinness, Harp and Smithwicks.
