Shamrockin' in Ghent
For over 20 years, Ghent has hosted the most Irish block party around! This one-night festivity will have you shamrockin’ out to live music from Tidewater Pipes and Drums, Hey Hey Hooligans, and The Fighting Jamesons. Eating or drinking something green will be inevitable; it’s more the matter of where. Don't worry, we're here to help! Check out Colley’s Cantina for green tacos and beer, Strawberry Fields for Chocolate Guinness & Whiskey Pecan gelato or maybe just the classic Corned Beef from Pendulum Fine Meats. Wherever you go and whatever you eat, dress the part and Shamrock the night away in Ghent.

Embrace the motto “Kiss me I’m Irish”, grab a seat and enjoy. Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!
