For 22 years, Laurel McFarlane, CEO of McFarlane Promotions, has been bringing San Diego the BIGGEST Saint Patrick’s Day Festival in the county! With the streets covered in green, three entertainment stages and the longest pub you’ve ever seen, the Shamrock festival always seems to bring out the Irish in everyone. So brush up on your Irish Sayings and get your tickets today.
I love this festival so much because it’s so green. It’s one of those events that seems to bring groups of friends who reconnect and celebrate St. Paddy’s Day while dancing on the green streets of Gaslamp. People are just so happy at this event! ~ Laurel McFarlane
Two of the stages will have a mix of DJ’s but my personal favorite will be the Pub Stage located at the corner of Fifth and G Street. This is the live music stage which will feature bands such as Ass Pocket Whiskey Fellas, Drunken Lullabies, and the Fooks.
VIP ticket holders receive access to the VIP lounge which includes a special VIP bar and VIP restrooms, three complimentary drinks at the VIP bar, and four complimentary drinks at participating VIP locations; The Field, Blush Ice Bar, McFadden’s and the East Village Tavern and Bowl. ($85) Use promo code C8DEAL at checkout to receive $10 off your VIP pass or $5 off your general admission pass ($40).
