90s Nostalgia Steals The Show At ShamrockFest 2017

For almost two decades, ShamrockFest has been perfecting the art of St. Patrick's Day partying! Combining the best of traditional Irish celebrations with a kickass lineup, the 2017 festival was ready to rock.

But did they deliver? In two words - HELL YEAH! Despite the literally freezing temperatures, this outdoor festival kept attendees moving with games, contests, and bands that kept the crowd hyped. 

Check out some of our favorite moments from the 2017 ShamrockFest below!

Of course, the biggest draw at ShamrockFest is the music. Fans look forward to a variety of bands from Dropkick Murphy's, to Coolio, to the constantly rotating DJ tent - this event always offers a mix to keep everyone pleased.

Our favorite performance this year? House of Pain - hands down!



This year, Jump Around turns 25 and House of Pain are celebrating with a national tour. This was the kickoff performance and bodes well for shows to come. Blending the group's traditional hits with a mix of covers and treats from solo projects - the setlist is full of 90s nostalgia, in the best way possible! 

Check out a few shots from House of Pain below and tell us your favorite St. Patrick's Day story in the comment section!
