It may only be the first day of March, but the timing is just right to start getting excited about the return of the Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival – one of my favorite events of the year! Once again taking place in and around Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant, this year’s celebration kicks off March 11 and runs through March 17.
You won’t find a drop of green beer here thanks to Raglan Road’s authentic Irish flair; instead, you’re invited to celebrate as the Irish do with award-winning Irish bands, quick-stepping Irish dancers, and palate-pleasing Irish cuisine.
Guinness headlines at the bar, alongside a mighty selection of beers, spirits and craft cocktails. On stage, Irish bands including JigJam, The Raglan Roots Coalition, Cooney & Ryan, Avi McGourty and The High Road steal the spotlight. And from the kitchen, inventive dishes by Irish celebrity chef Kevin Dundon make their mark on the menu.
Complimentary face painting and fun giveaways round out the event, ensuring that there’s something for everyone in the family.
Once you’ve been to The Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival, it’s easy to see why Raglan Road is America’s #1 Irish Pub.
Mighty Festival hours are 4 p.m.-1:30 a.m. March 11, 14, 15 and 16; noon until 1:30 a.m. March 12 and 13; and 11 a.m. until 1:30 a.m. March 17.
