Annie Bailey’s Irish Pub and Tellus360 are again teaming up with the Lancaster Office 0f Promotion (LOOP) to ring in St. Patrick’s Day with an all-things-Irish block party – the King Street Seisiún (“session” in Irish).

The 2nd annual event is scheduled for Sunday, March 15 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. and will take over the zero block of East King Street, including a ticketed area (for 21+ only) spanning from Penn Square and stretching to North Duke Street. The street will be closed for traffic from 8 a.m. -8:30 p.m.

The event will benefit our return non-profits: The Junior League of Lancaster, The Lancaster Office of Promotion, and Music for Everyone. In addition we’ve added a few new ones: The Lancaster City Alliance, and more to be determined.

Like any true Irish session, the King Street Seisiún will feature great live entertainment, food and, of course, beer!
