Get ready for the biggest St. Paddy’s Festival yet! It will start with the Shamrock Shuffle 5K Run and Leprechaun Chase for children at 9 a.m. Following the race at 10 a.m, the pipes and drum groups will be joined by Celtic dancers to help kick off the festival.

Throughout the day:

– 2 large stages outside, 1 stage inside Cassidy’s Irish Pub, and 1 satellite stage inside the Hotel Corpus Christi Bayfront.

– 16 live musical acts will rotate throughout the day so there will never be a dull moment.

– 12 food trucks with local and Irish dishes.

– Over 30 art vendors showcasing local goods and Irish specialties.

– A Kids Zone for children of all ages with inflatables, rides, face painting and balloon animals.

And Don’t forget about the GREEN BEER as well as several other adult beverage options including our local brewery Rebel Toad!

This year, Cassidy’s Irish Pub is hoping to put Corpus Christi on the international map, by having the LARGEST Flip Cup game ever!

Make sure you come out for the entire day and bring the whole family!
