The Raglan Road Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival presents three days and nights of live Irish music from March 15th through the 17th, headlined by one of Celtic rock’s hardest working bands, the Young Dubliners. Nine bands in all join the talented Raglan Road troupe of Irish dancers to feature non-stop entertainment from mornings and on into late night during the annual celebration.
Families can enjoy the festival atmosphere while dancers invite children on stage for a fun dance lesson. Late-night revelers can grab a seat for a hearty rock and Irish-infused live performance by Young Dubliners, who play hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the United States and Europe every year.
Raglan Road co-owner John Cooke says fans of the annual celebration of all things Irish will be sure to hear something new: “We’ll also mix it up with some unique musical collaborations by our in-house artists.”
Be sure to plan ahead for all of the fun. On March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, guests will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis with a $10 cover charge for each guest age 18 and older. Reservations can be booked for other festival days (no cover) by calling (407) 938-0300. Guests can enjoy a mighty selection of beers, whiskeys, and craft cocktails to pair with exceptional pub grub and more elegant Irish fare while musicians and dancers perform on multiple stages, indoors and out, from 3 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. March 15 and 11 a.m. until 1:30 a.m. March 16 and 17 (Pub opens at 9 a.m. for seating Saturday and Sunday). Mighty Festival guests can accent their Irish holiday attire with complimentary face painting March 15 from 3-9 p.m. and March 16-17 from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. The entertainment schedule will be posted at raglanroad.com.
