Athens St. Patrick’s Day Festival

Hosted by Southern Festivals, a fairly new business aiming to organize regional events, the second annual Athens St. Patrick’s Day Festival presents a full day of live entertainment, vendors, food trucks, beer gardens and kid-friendly activities. Participating bars and restaurants along Clayton Street will start kicking things off around noon, with an official pub crawl beginning at 4 p.m. at which patrons sporting the event T-shirt will be offered special deals. Coinciding with the tail end of UGA’s spring break, the fest offers a chance to participate in holiday shenanigans without trekking all the way to Savannah. Check for the full performance schedule.
