Shamrockin' in Ghent

March 6, 2020
Colley Ave. between Shirley and Gates Ave.

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 Lucky 757, the Fighting Jamesons, and an opening performance by Tidewater Pipes and Drums.  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 Cantina for green tacos and beer, Strawberry Fields for Vanilla Guinness & Butterscotch Baileys 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.
