Uptown Greenville to Paint the City Green for St. Patrick’s Day

GREENVILLE, N.C. – Greenville’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations will kick off Saturday, March 11 at various locations in the Uptown District. Attendees are encouraged to don their green and gold and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Uptown style.

The festivities begin with a Science Expo at 10 am at the Go Science Center. With over 40 science themed booths your little leprechauns are sure to learn and enjoy.

Thanks to the generous support of the Boundary @ West End, Uptown Greenville’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival kicks off at 12:00 pm with Celtic music from Bill Redding and Friends at the Five Points Plaza, located at the corner of 5th and Evans Street. The event will include live music, a grog garden, Irish food offerings, food trucks, and kid’s activities. To connect the two events, a “potato wagon” will offer hayrides between the Go Science Center and Five Points Plaza.

Join Uptown Greenville in showing appreciation to our local fire rescue personnel with a meet and greet and fire rescue games and activities. Greenville, NC’s Fire Rescue team will be at Five Points Plaza with a fire truck and fire safety educational activities.

At 1:00 pm, the green festivities go into high gear at Five Points Plaza as festivalgoers hear from the event’s headlining band—The Tan and Sober Gentlemen, a North Carolina-based, Celtic driven band with music from both sides of the pond.

The whole community is invited to come out to enjoy the daylong celebration starting with the Science Expo at the Go Science Center, and ending with live music at the Five Points Plaza.
