St. Patrick's Day

While it may seem like a minor holiday to others, Columbia locals take St. Patrick's Day pretty seriously. It all stems from the time honored tradition, St. Pat's in Five Points. With 36 years of history and 45,000 attendees, this event has become one of the largest festivals in the Southeast. It brings in bands from across the U.S. and across multiple genres of music. This year's lineup includes up-and-coming artists like Judah & The Lion and rising country superstar Chris Lane, among others. Beyond the main event, there's a race, parade, and family-fun area to satisfy all of your tribe's needs. Seem overwhelming? We have a blog to help you out.

If you can't make it for the festival, plan your trip for other St. Pat's themed events like "St. Practice Day" or "The Official Kick-Off." Check out the whole list below, or head to our calendar of events for more reasons to pull out the suitcase.
