TAMPA, FL. – The Tampa Downtown Partnership and the City of Tampa have moved the date of the upcoming River O’ Green Fest to this Sunday, March 13th due to weather concerns from a cold front approaching on Saturday, March 12th.
Presented by Grow Financial, the planned festivities will still take place on Sunday, March 13th in Tampa’s Downtown in the beautiful Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.
The free event kicks off at 11 am, as the Hillsborough River is transformed into a bright shade of green for the occasion. Visitors can view the river along the Tampa Riverwalk near Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.
“We are so excited to bring back this wonderful Tampa tradition,” said Tampa Downtown Partnership President and CEO Lynda Remund. “We haven’t been able to host our signature event since 2019, so we know people are looking forward to putting on their green garb, pulling out their best Irish accent, and celebrating the holiday in the greatest city!”
The Irish-themed celebration runs until 5 pm and includes live entertainment, food trucks, beer, and family-friendly activities.
The annual St. Patrick’s Day festival is brought to you by the Tampa Downtown Partnership and the City of Tampa and is sponsored by Grow Financial, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and PBX-change.
“It’s been way too long since Tampa got its Irish on, so let’s get ready to shamrock and roll at River O’Green 2022. One thing we can all a-green on is that this town knows how to paddy,” said City of Tampa Mayor Jane Castor.
