St. Patrick's Day in Roswell

For those of you looking for excitement this St. Patrick’s Day, Roswell has plenty to offer.

On March 11, Mac McGee’s Irish Pub and Eatery will be hosting their 2nd annual “MacFestivus: ShamROCK in the Park” celebration, a family friendly event with live music and a 1/2K Road Race, which will take place from 12-6pm in Heart of Roswell Park, right in front of Mac McGee’s. Food and beer trucks will be available for patrons of the pub, and Irish dancers and bagpipers will be preforming all day.

Fans of live music will be excited to hear about the full schedule of bands playing all day long.

Mac McGee’s will also be open to the public early on March 17th for anyone wanting to start the day off with a hearty St. Patty’s Day breakfast of bangers and mash. Mac McGee’s will have shot and beer specials throughout the day, and at 5pm the live music, Irish dancers, and bagpipers will return for more performances. Best of all, there will be no cover for either of the events at Mac McGee’s.
