DUBLIN – Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the most “green” city in the Bay Area! Dublin, California hosts a two-day festival at Civic Center Park on Saturday and Sunday, March 17 & 18, 2018.

Three stages of entertainment will feature traditional Irish folk music and Celtic Rock. You’ll also enjoy roaming leprechauns and bagpipers. You won’t want to miss the Irish Dancers as they perform on the Dance Stage throughout the day on Saturday. Stroll through the Irish Marketplace to find over 250 vendors offering unique Celtic artwork, Irish tartans, hand-knit wool sweaters, beautiful handmade jewelry, books, music, and more.

If all that shopping and entertainment leaves you hungry, head to Festival Food Court where you’ll find an expanded menu with items such as corned beef sliders and fish & chips. Visit the Irish Tea Cottage for a steaming cup of Irish tea served in fine china, accompanied by delicious shortbread and scones as lively Irish pub music fills the air.

Thrilling carnival rides and games for all ages round out the offerings, making Dublin a favorite destination for the St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Free festival parking is available on Sierra Ct. and on Clark Ave. You may also park at the Dublin Swim Center at 8157 Village Parkway and catch a free shuttle to the event.
