As always, the Olde Town St. Patrick’s Day Festival is all about live Irish and Celtic music, fun activities for kids, great vendors, delicious food and of course, beer! We have an expanded event area including an all new Kids Zone in Olde Town Square.

We have 2 brand new beer vendors- Denver Beer Company which is coming to Olde Town this summer and Some Place Else which is a recent addition to Arvada. We’ll also have great beer from Grand Lake Tavern and Odyssey Beerwerks. As always, we’ll have lots of great food options from the traditional Irish corned beef to the kid-friendly burgers and pizza!

We have face painting, a clown and balloon artist as well as a slide and bouncy castle in the square.

Our headliner is Potcheen, a top Celtic band in the Denver-area. We also have 2 other great bands to start us off- Wild Mountain and Angus Mohr as well as a bagpiper, 2 Irish dance groups and the Centennial State Pipes and Drums, who will march through Olde Town. You don’t want to miss it!
5. Any festival secrets or things people should make sure they do?
Come early with the family to enjoy the whole day and check out all of our great vendors! Plus, you are welcome to bring your own camp chairs if you want to setup a spot in front of the stage to catch all the great acts! Also bring cash if you want to buy beers- our ticket booths are cash only.
See you this weekend!
