It’s ShamRock Time for Downtown

| March 5, 2022 | 0 Comments

After a three-year hiatus, the San Diego ShamROCK Music + Beer Festival is making a triumphant return to the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter from 2 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, March 12. For 26 years, locals and tourists alike have flocked to the Gaslamp Quarter as ShamROCK transforms the bustling San Diego downtown neighborhoods into a Celtic carnival for the senses with an abundance of pub-style seating, flowing green beer, traditional Irish steppers, Celtic rock bands, photo-ops, shenanigan games (with prizes.), and activation throughout the Gaslamp.

Guests in 2022 can look forward to an impressive lineup as ShamROCK tips its hat to its past and returns to an Irish and Celtic rock-centric roster with headliner Young Dubliners. “We wanted to go back to our roots and really highlight the elements that made ShamROCK such a massive phenomenon for the last 26 years” says Rhiannon Luna of the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation. “That means bringing the focus back to our bands and the laid back, community block party feel.”

ShamROCK block party attendees will be welcome to enjoy free games throughout the day at the ShamROCK Shenanigans Block. Giant lucky Jenga, pot of gold cornhole, and giant beer pong are just some of the shenanigans that will test your skill and luck. Throughout the day, the infamous ShamROCK leprechaun emcee will be hosting showdowns on stage with epic prizes that would make even a leprechaun green with envy.

General admission tickets start at just $45 for a day full of festivities, non-stop music, and a keepsake ShamROCK stein. VIP tickets start at just $89 and include five drinks, VIP dedicated entry, exclusive access to the Lucky Leprechaun VIP Irish Pub, and a festive Saint Patrick’s Day hat, keepsake stein, and yummy bites like Irish Stew from The Field.
