The Mayor's River O'Green Fest is the City of Tampa's official annual Saint Patrick's Day event that takes place in beautiful Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. The party is centered around the Hillsborough River, which will be transformed into a bright shade of green for the occasion. The river provides a perfect backdrop to the celebration which includes live entertainment, games, kids activities, local restaurants serving small plates of Irish faire, beer, and more! Admission is free and the entire family is welcome, including four-legged members.
In the spirit of Saint Patrick, we encourage attendees to donate food items to help the Salvation Army carry out their mission of helping those in need. There will be a tent on site to collect the donations.
