St. Patrick’s Day

Come dig into our Irish roots in Southern

The mining boom brought in immigrants from around the world to work in our area, and you can still find traces of their traditions in our mountain melting pot culture. For the upcoming holiday, there’ll be plenty of Celtic celebration.

Here’s a look at some of our top events:

Rhythm of the Dance

Chuck Mathena Center, Fri. March 13, 2015

Join the National Dance Company of Ireland, a live band, and 3 tenor performers as they showcase the ancient, traditional and contemporary music and dances of the country.

Irish Festival Weekend

Pipestem Resort State Park, Fri., March 13- Sun. March 15, 2015

Immerse yourself in Irish entertainment with music, dance and sport. Try your luck at Irish road bowling, catch the band Solar Creek performing mountain and Irish music, and dine on Irish cuisine at the buffet dinner.


Irish Pub on Washington Street
Lewisburg, WV

A Southern Living “Top 100 Best in the South,” there’s always something happening at this pub, from trivia to live tunes to special events. Their St. Paddy’s day celebration starts strong at 3 p.m., and coincides with $3 mystery beer night, one of many weekly specials.
