Knox Shamrock Fest™


Knox Shamrock Fest™ spans two days: Friday, March 15th, 2019, 3pm-10pm, and Saturday, March 16th, 2019, 10am-10pm, in Market Square, downtown Knoxville. The Knox Shamrock Fest™ is appropriate for the entire family! We will have festive music, live concerts, inflatable bounce houses, slides and an obstacle course, carousel & crafts for the little ones, face painting, balloon twisting, midway games, prizes, vendors and other fun activities for kids of all ages. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase. For those age 21 years or older, green beer, Guinness, Irish whiskey & wine 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 Friday, March 15th, 3p-8p, in Market Square at the Ticket Sales Tent.


Volunteers are needed for both the Lucky Kidney Run™ and the Market Square Irish Festival on both Friday, March 15th and Saturday, March 16th. This is a favorite event of students needing community service hours for Tennessee Promise and school-related requirements, as well as corporate community outreach teams. We happily accept groups of volunteers as well as children, as long as they are accompanied by parent or guardian age 21 years or older. For those interested in helping with alcohol sales and ID checks, email for pre-approval & registration code. All volunteers receive FREE volunteer shirt. ​Click here to VOLUNTEER! We need you to make our event a success! Thank you!
