St. Patrick’s Day Fun

Sharing the fun!

St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year but celebrations are not only happening on March 17th but also on the weekends before and after.

You will have plenty of opportunities to wear green and catch the luck of the Irish! If you’re like us and will probably be celebrating at home with the kids, try some of the ideas we found on Pinterest for even more St Patty’s fun.


County Sumner Irish Festival (Map)

The County Sumner Irish Festival is a fantastic event held in March at Bledsoe’s Fort Historical Park in Castalian Springs, Tennessee. The park is home to an authentic Irish cottage built by Hugh Rogan in the late 1790s as well as a historic trail that runs alongside a settler cemetery and remnants of a 19th century spring house.
Live Irish music is sure to have you dancing and toe-tapping! Food and fun create the perfect festive celebration! The event also includes guided hikes, storytelling, craft beer from Half Batch Brewing, historic house tours, food vendors Delaney’s Street Eats, Mobile Meat Sweats BBQ, shopping vendors**, and more! The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club will also play two exhibition games throughout the day that are included with admission.
Wear your favorite Irish-themed attire to participate in the Costume Contest where prizes will given away! Categories include Adults, Kids (12 and under), and Dogs*!
