America’s Largest St. Paddy’s Day Festival Returning to DC with a Splash (of Beer)

Washington, DC
  – ShamrockFest is returning for a fifteenth year to the RFK Stadium Festival Grounds on March 21, 2015 and tickets are on sale today, Jan. 16, at Noon EST through ShamrockFest.com and ticketing platform EventSprout. Guests can expect over 30 Celtic and Alternative rock bands across five stages, with this year’s lineup being announced soon by festival organizer Red Frog Events.

Shamrockers can anticipate an elevated experience from the ShamrockFest they know and love. In addition to the live music, the festival will boast a variety of food and beer options, Irish performers and an Irish market, as well as contests and games throughout the day. A VIP option is available, which includes a bottomless souvenir ShamrockFest mug and an exclusive VIP area within the festival.

“As the largest St. Patrick’s Day festival in the United States, we’re excited to deliver yet another memorable day for all those looking to celebrate the Irish holiday,” says ShamrockFest Director Amanda Hogue. “ShamrockFest has been a staple in the DC-area for over a decade and our team has been working hard to improve efficiencies and plans to provide an unforgettable 2015 experience.”

Chicago-based Red Frog Events, producer of Firefly Music Festival, Warrior Dash and American Beer Classic, among other national events and services, acquired ShamrockFest from DC’s GoCity Events in December 2014.

The first 1,000 General Admission ticket purchasers will receive a special price of $19.99, while the first 250 VIP purchasers can buy for only $59.99. For additional information, head to ShamrockFest.com or contact Lauren Gardner at media@shamrockfest.com.
