The inaugural St. Patrick’s Day event is scheduled for Saturday, March 15 from 2-9 p.m. and will take over the zero block of East King Street, including a ticketed area (for 21+ only) spanning from the corner of King and Christian streets and stretching to South Duke Street. The street will be closed for traffic from 2-11 p.m.
Like any true Irish session, the King Street Seisiún is centered around great live music, including Central Pennsylvania-based Celtic acts The Kilmaine Saints, The Ogham Stones and Seasons, with 92.7 WKZF’s Holly Love serving as emcee. Rounding out the entertainment schedule are dance performances by the Hooley School of Irish Dance, bag pipers and a special Lancaster version of Irish Dancing with the Stars featuring local celebrities.
During the King Street Seisiún, attendees will purchase tokens to use when buying food and drinks. A beer truck will be parked featuring brews from Guinness Stout, Magners Irish Cider and Lancaster Beverage. Bushmills Irish Whiskey and Bailey’s Irish Cream are also featured. Annie Bailey’s will serve a variety of Irish dishes, including shepherd’s pie and bangers and mash. Subway will also be open and serving food during the event.
In addition to the ticketed area, both Annie Bailey’s and Tellus360 will remain open to the public throughout the day for normal business.
