Looking for a good place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the neighborhood? This Sunday, check out the first annual Shaw’s Community St. Patrick’s Day Street Festival.

The festival, sponsored by Shaw’s Tavern, will take place on March 17 from 11 am to 5 pm on 6th Street NW between Florida Avenue and S Streets.

The festival will include an extended beer garden, including green beer and traditional Irish fare.

Entertainment will include live music by local bluegrass, Irish and jazz combos King Street Bluegrass, DC Swing! and Superior Cling, as well as Irish Step dancers from the Boyle School of Irish dancing. Check back for a schedule of events.

Bring the kids and let them explore a fun house and a rock climbing wall. A face painter, airbrush tattoo artist and balloon artist will also be on hand to amuse the little ones.

Local groups will have information booths lining the street, including Artspace DC, DC Public Library, MPD Neighborhood Watch, Howard University Hospital, Car2Go, Red Bull and local politicians.

The festival is free of charge and will be held rain or shine!
