Let’s paint the town green! Downtown’s yearly Shamrock Festival and St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of Roanoke’s biggest events. This year will mark its 24th anniversary. The event is held on Market Street, behind the market building from 10am-5pm on Saturday, March 16th. Over 15,000 individuals participate in the event each year. The parade starts at 11:00am. The rest of the day is full of food, bands, bagpipers, stepdancers, any and everything green or shamrock related!
Dinner at Carlos’ afterwards for those who are interested (please sign up for that event separately if you plan on attending).
