St. Patrick’s Day

Brothers Kershner Brewhouse, Skippack

This St. Patrick’s Day celebration is too large and festive to be contained to one day. Live music includes performers Chris Huff, the King Brothers, and Matthew Gordon & Silvershade Scenery. Pints of Brothers Kershner brews are there for the raising on Friday. Irish food is available from the Skippack Village Italian Market.

St. Paddy’s Celebration

McAllister Brewing Company, North Wales

Celebrate the holiday with a day full of Irish-inspired festivities, delicious food, and the famous McAllister hand-crafted ales. Chef Andrew will be serving up a special St. Paddy’s menu and the Royal Avenue Band will provide the soundtrack.

St. Patrick’s Day Bagpiper Train

Colebrookdale Railroad, Boyertown

Mar. 17

The evocative sounds of a real bagpipe will play a vintage train out of the station on this ride through a part of the county that visually mimics the Irish landscape. Once underway, passengers (ages 16 and older) feast on a multicourse, authentic Irish dinner that unfolds over the three-hour excursion.

Full details on all these events for St. Patrick’s Day 2023 are on the VFTCB website.
