Everybody’s Irish on St. Paddy’s Day! And everyone has a great time at the St. Patrick’s Day Downtown Street Festival! From 3 to 93 there’s a little bit of something for everyone, and it’s the perfect time to see what’s new and exciting in downtown Wichita Falls.

The St. Patrick’s Day Downtown Street Festival is this Saturday (03.16.19) from 2 to 11 p.m. at the corner of 8th and Indiana, and features a children’s area, live music, food trucks, drink vendors and plenty of fun conversations with friends you haven’t seen in a while.

The feature performer this year is The Nixons from Oklahoma City.

The Nixons have been around since the early ‘90s and have even had a song that climbed to #77 on the Billboard Top 200!

Before The Nixons we’ll be entertained by the likes of AA Bottom, John Wilson, James Cook, even Martin Byrnes & Murty Ryan all the way from Ireland on the outdoor stage! You knew there’d be some traditional Irish music at this party!

There will be even more entertainment going on inside the Iron Horse Pub. Here's the full lineup of artists and stage times.
