Sacramento’s St. Patrick’s Day Updates:

18 02 2010

With great excitement we announce the return of Sacramento’s biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebration! Once again, we will close off L Street between 16th & 15th Streets for a celebration like no other. Last year, nearly 7,000 people showed up for an all-day event that remained festive and safe; we had no incidents, thanks to great security and a great crowd. This year, we’re projecting 8,000 revelers, and all are encouraged to get involved. We are working with The Sacramento Press to get the community involved. We will be sure to  keep everyone up-to-date as things develops right here. So join the conversation, tell us what you think–and what you want to see more or less of for 2010.

Last year, the crowd-favorite 80’s cover band Tainted Love headlined the street concert series. Great news: They’re confirmed for 2010! Start practicing your moon walk. The Second Stage will feature traditional Irish dancers and Irish session music. The California Fire Department Pipes and Drums will blow your mind and have you screaming between live bands.

Outdoor concessions will be well stocked. The food tent will again be selling sandwiches, sodas, and brats–and all proceeds will benefit the Fire Dept.’s Burn Unit. Two outdoor bars, a whiskey tent, and 26 beer taps will keep those beverage lines to a minimum. The 20/30 Club will host a Donation Station selling shirts with proceeds benefiting a local children’s cancer center.

All this, plus de Vere’s Irish Pub bustling scene, will make this an event not to miss.
