Get ready for a shamrock in good time, Tampa! The Hillsborough River is about to get a festive makeover this St. Patrick’s Day, turning a vibrant shade of green for the city’s annual River O’Green festival.

More Than Just a Pretty River

Live Music

Get your jig on with lively Irish tunes and other genres to keep the party going all day.

Foodie Paradise

From classic corned beef and cabbage to delicious food trucks, there’s something to satisfy every craving.

Brews & Cheers

Raise a glass (or two) of green beer and a wide variety of other beverages for the adults.

Activities Galore

Keep the little ones entertained with fun games, face painting, and maybe even a leprechaun or two hiding in the park!

New This Year in Tampa

The Tampa Rough Riders are bringing their exciting St. Patrick’s Day Parade to the streets, coinciding with the festival for an extra dose of merriment.

Don’t Worry, Be Green (Safety First!)

The city assures everyone that the green dye used is completely safe for the environment, wildlife, and even you! It’s non-toxic, biodegradable, and meets all the necessary environmental standards.

Mark Your Calendars!

The Hillsborough River will be dyed green on March 16th, and the River O’Green festival kicks off at 11 AM, lasting until 6 PM. So come dressed in your greenest attire, grab your friends and family, and get ready for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration you won’t forget!
