Throw back Irish libations at 23rd shamRock

It’s time to shamROCK the Gaslamp once again! For the 23rd year, green carpeting will cover the streets as partiers throw back Irish libations and shake their clovers alongside award-winning Irish steppers and plaid-clad go-go dancers.

Bedeck yourself in green on Friday, March 17, grab some friends and get ready for one of the biggest block parties of the year. Three stages, non-stop music and green Bud Light and Jameson Irish Whiskey libations will have you second-guessing what side of the pond you’re on.

The Pub Stage will feature acts with an Irish twist - get your jig on with Irish punk and your favorite Irish pub shout-along songs. Local and regional DJs will drop beats all night at the Pint Stage. Over at the Clover Stage, an epic EDM line-up will keep the energy going throughout shamROCK.

The shamROCK Custom Clover Crawl, new for 2017, invites attendees to build their own pub crawl. For $15 or $30 (additional to regular admission), attendees will receive 3 or 6 drinks tickets. Pick and choose from over 20 participating locations during shamROCK to create your own custom pub crawl around the Gaslamp Quarter.

The shamROCK bash is on Friday, March 17 from 6 p.m. to midnight. General admission tickets start at $40 and $35 for military members. To experience the luck of the Irish, upgrade to the Lucky Leprechaun VIP experience, which includes VIP entry, seven  complimentary drinks at participating bars (one each at Coyote Ugly, Casablanca Lounge, East Village Tavern + Bowl and Knotty Barrel, plus three at the Leprechaun VIP Bar), discounts on drinks at the VIP bar, access to the exclusive Lucky Leprechaun VIP lounge, VIP restrooms and more. VIP tickets start at $90 and $80 for military members. To purchase tickets and get more information, visit
