Knox Shamrock Fest™

Presented by Fresenius Kidney Care

Knox Shamrock Fest™, presented by Fresenius Kidney Care, spans two days: Friday, March 16th, 2018, 3pm-10pm, and Saturday, March 17th, 2018, 10am-10pm, in Market Square, downtown Knoxville. The Market Square Irish Festival is appropriate for the entire family! We will have festive music, live concerts, inflatable bounce houses, slides and an obstacle course, carousel for the little ones, face painting, balloon twisting, midway games, prizes, popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs, drinks and snacks, vendors and other fun activities for kids of all ages. For those age 21 years or older, green beer & Guinness, along with other tasty Irish concoctions, will be available for purchase (must show legal identification).

Tickets will be on sale at the festival for children’s activities, games and food/snacks; cash and credit cards accepted. Tickets are $1 each or 12 tickets for $10; midway games, balloon twisting, face painting, and other children’s activities will be available for 1 ticket, 2 tickets or 3 tickets, depending on the attraction. If you are participating in the Lucky Kidney Run, you may purchase tickets during online registration and pick them up during the Lucky Kidney Run™ early packet pick-up on March 10th, 10am – 6pm at Runner’s Market in Bearden.


Volunteers are needed for both the Lucky Kidney Run™ and the Market Square Irish Festival on both Friday, March 16th and Saturday, March 17th. This is a favorite event of students needing community service hours for Tennessee Promise and school-related requirements. We happily accept groups of volunteers as well as children, as long as they are accompanied by an adult or guardian age 18 years or older. All volunteers receive FREE volunteer shirt. ​Click here to VOLUNTEER! We need you to make our event a success! Thank you!
