Expect a parade, live music, Irish dancers, and a craft beer court showcasing brewers from around the state.

The celebration kicks off at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 15 with the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. At 2 p.m., a portion of the square will be blocked off where the Craft Beer Village will be open until 6 p.m.
