ShamRock 2009

Often billed as the "biggest St. Patrick's Day block party west of the Mississippi," ShamRock is literally rolling out the green carpet (AstroTurf, actually) for the annual event -- thousands of square feet of the green stuff.

This year's musical block party at Sixth and Market streets, in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, has Irish rock legends the Young Dubliners, Celtic punk rockers the Fooks, local Celtic bands, DJs and traditional Irish dancers.

Also on tap on the turf will be plenty of authentic Irish fare, all the green beer you can stomach, and dancing till midnight. Face painters, stiltwalkers, hat makers, green martinis (yes, even those drinks go green once a year) and more will also be part of the celebration. About 20,000 people take to the streets each year to party.

Tickets are $20 in advance ($25 at the gate) and include admission plus food and drink specials at participating Gaslamp restaurants and bars. This event is 21-and-up only, and runs from 4 pm - midnight, Tuesday, March 17, 2009.
