Shipgarten is hosting an unforgettable ST. PATRICKS DAY WEEKEND and you do not want to miss a full weekend of good times. We are bringing in amazing live bands, there will be food and drink specials, games, prizes, giveaways & more! Deck yourself out in green and make some great memories with your friends and family!

Check out the daily details below:


Join us on St. Patrick’s Day as we kick off our weekend festivities! Be one of the first 50 people through the gate and get a bunch of free green swag to go with your all green outfit. Look forward to 4 sets of live music starting at 2pm and a special St. Paddy’s Day menu full of your favorite Irish dishes and drinks at an unbeatable price! We will have corn hole, giant Jenga, & cup pong games set up across our venue for you and your group to play & some leprechauns walking around the venue for you to take pictures with! If you like vendors, we have you covered with an immersive whiskey pop-up experience by a surprise vendor that will be making a specialty drink on site! And just in case you were wondering, we will have a green eggs and kegs special going on. It will be a great kick start to the weekend and you do not want to miss out!!


The fun continues on Saturday for our (21+) St. Patties Day Drinking Party. Deck yourselves out in green and accessorize with the free swag we’re giving to the first 100 people through the gate! Roam our venue and check out the beer festival in our main tent where we will have sampling from 40+ breweries or check out the 2 different live music sets we will have playing from 12:30pm-7:30pm. If you want to make an unforgettable photo memory happen with your friends, participate in our celebratory green streamer throw at 4pm. Think JMU football games but green.  And if you weren’t able to make it to our Friday event, our immersive whiskey pop-up experience will still be on our venue all day whipping up great drinks! You can try your luck at guessing how many four leaf clovers are in the boot mug at the center of our venue and the closest guess gets a gift card. When you get hungry we will have your favorite Irish dishes hot and ready at unbeatable prices; then wash it down with our drink and shot specials! We will have a green eggs and keg promo running all day and of course as much green beer as you can drink. There will also be different leprechaun faces taped up around the venue and if you see one, post it on your story and mention our @shipgarten Instagram. The person who mentions us in the most story posts will win a gift card! Get your group together and celebrate big with us!


To round out the weekend of festivities we have our Kids Festival hosted by Merida, Darth Vader & Princess Tiana! You’ll recognize Merida by her flaming red hair and Scottish accent. Merida will also be performing a bow demonstration for the kids and they can even release a suction cup, ended arrow into the sky! Tell your little ones that there is a pot of gold hidden somewhere on our venue and if they find it, they get a special prize. There will also be a scavenger hunt for them to enjoy and if they complete it they will get a gift bag. We will have a craft table on site for them to make some fun Irish art or they can get a four leaf clover painted on their face at our face painting table. Let them let loose in our two moon bounces or watch them climb to new heights on our jungle gym. If your dog is your child, no worries there! Our whole venue is dog friendly and we even have a fenced in dog park for them to play in. If you’re looking for a fun, family friendly place to celebrate St. Paddy’s, Shipgarten is your spot!
