Spring is nearly here, and with that comes one of our favorite holidays: St. Patrick’s Day! Myrtle Beach is known worldwide as a center of fun in the sun, and where better to party on St. Patrick’s Day than right here on the Grand Strand? One of the best parts about this exciting day in Myrtle is the annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival, now entering its 32nd year of partying and family fun!
Located in North Myrtle Beach, this ever-popular festival welcomes you to a sea of green, great music, delicious food and more on March 12, 2022! Kicking off with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, this festival is a treat for all guests looking for Irish fun in one of the most exciting beach communities in the country. The largest on the Grand Strand, with over 100 parade entries and a long history of fun, this parade has been pleasing families and party-going guests year-after-year, as they line Main Street to get a glimpse of a magical parade. Be sure to post up with your favorite beach chair, blanket, or other comfortable seating in advance, you don’t want to miss your chance for the best seat for this 2-hour extravaganza.
After the parade, continue the party at the St. Patrick’s Day street festival! With three stages of live entertainment, there’s no shortage of Irish spirit to keep you partying all day long. From Irish Pipe Bands, Irish Dancers, and many more live performances, this festival could be the closest you’ll get to partying in Ireland without ever leaving the country!
Live entertainment isn’t all on offer though, and those with a taste for shopping will also find a lot to love. With over 100 vendors displaying their crafts throughout the day, you can find keepsakes, clothing and more to keep the memory of your trip to the festival for years to come.
Want to indulge in some delicious treats? Food vendors and Main Street businesses will have a wide variety of offerings so guests can experience new dishes, dine on familiar savory treats and more. Be sure to keep an eye out for the leprechauns that scurry around this festival too, and get pictures with them! For the little ones in your party, there is an exciting children’s area packed with rides, games and more, so they can get in on the party atmosphere as well.
Last but certainly not least, you will even have the chance to be crowned North Myrtle Beach’s best St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun! Show up in your very best Leprechaun outfit and be entered into a contest to be named the best Leprechaun of the festival.
We can’t wait for the St. Patrick’s Day Festival, and we can’t wait to hear what you’re most looking forward to doing there. Be sure to book your next stay at Ocean Club Resort and get ready to party, St. Patrick’s Day style!
