The South Florida Irish Community invites everyone to join in a traditional Celtic celebration at the 37th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival at high noon, Saturday, March 10, 2018 (the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day.) The festival will be held at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park in Coral Gables (2800 Ponce de Leon Boulevard) just five blocks south of Miracle Mile.

Entertainment will be provided by the popular Irish singer and harpist, Tricianne Garrihy, featuring Avalon who will play traditional and contemporary Irish music; Celtic Cross featuring Paddy Kelligan; Tipsy Laird, the Irish Balladeer; and by the St. Andrew Bagpipe Band. In addition, Irish dancers from the Breffni Academy of Dance led by Michael O’Hara will provide plenty of fancy stepping and gravity-defying leaps. The Miss Colleen Pageant has been revived and the participants will be showcased on stage.

Holding to the belief that "Everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day," The St. Patrick’s Day Committee has combined family-oriented entertainment and a variety of palate-pleasing delectables such as traditional corned beef & cabbage and authentic Irish soda bread, as well as a wide array of spirits and other beverages including Irish whisky and Irish stout. The festival will also include many children’s activities, including clowns, face painting, a giant slide, and the very popular rock-wall-climbing. A wide variety of Irish crafts will be available for sale by high quality vendors.

Since the year 2000, the festival has been held in Coral Gables at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park. The site of the Festival is named for former Coral Gables Mayor, the late Fred B. Hartnett, a long-time member of The Emerald Society.

Since the year 1979, the St. Patrick’s Day Committee has organized a St. Patrick’s Day Parade or Festival. As always, admission to the Festival is free and open to all. For more information, call 305-596-9995
