If you live in an apartment in Glen Allen, VA then you should know that Shamrock The Block has a new home! The 11th Annual Shamrock The Block will take place on the Boulevard off Broad Street on Saturday, March 15th beginning at 11am. We're moving to a larger area with more space, better parking and more BLOCK TO ROCK!!
Shamrock The Block is FREE, with great food, live music all day and plenty o' green beverages for you to enjoy safely, so bring a designated driver. This is the first outdoor event of the season, and last year, more than 30,000 people came out. With the move to the Boulevard, we've expanded the kid's activities, the band lineup and have more things to do and see. There will be bands, beer and vendors.
It will start on the Boulevard around Movieland at W. Leigh Street and will run up to En Su Boca at Broad Street.
Shamrock the Block had been held in Shockoe Bottom for 10 years, but this year organizers decided that the event had outgrown the space at the 17th Street Farmer’s Market.
This is the perfect place to have a street festival. We have two huge lanes and a median. It’s a much larger space. We think this is a prime location.
Shockoe Bottom and Slip bars and restaurants are planning their own events for Saturday, March 15 and say the party will continue in Shockoe Bottom, although perhaps on a smaller scale.
