Shamrock City Returns this Weekend
Rock City’s Shamrock City
March 11-12 and 18-19, 8:30 am to 5 pm daily
Transport yourself to Ireland for FREE this weekend at Rock City. You may not actually cross the pond but the 10th Annual Shamrock City is a close second with Celtic music, Irish food and other St. Patrick’s shenanigans. (Remember locals get in free with resident passes).
Everything is turning green for the celebration, from the waterfall to the fudge. You can also take a jig lesson, hear live music from bands such as The Molly Maguires or scale the Blarney Stone Climbing Wall.
Dublin your fun at the Suffolk Sheep Encounter, compliments of Bagby’s Critter Coral (10 am until 3 pm daily). New this year is a caricature artist and panning for gold. As with all of Rock City’s special events, kids can get a passport that includes activities, coupons and a place for collecting stamps throughout the park.
Delicious Irish bites include mulligan stew, corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips, green kettle corn and limeade – available at different food locations throughout Rock City. Afterward, stop by Starbucks and ask for colored Matcha powder to add to a variety of fun frappuccinos!
Go to Rock City's website for more info on the entertainment lineup.
Shamrock City is once again partnering with the Chattanooga district of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Guests can purchase green shamrocks for $1 and gold shamrocks for $5 now through March 23 to help supply needed funds to local families with MD.
Make sure to ask for Chattanooga’s spring break safari guide at the ticket desk available March 10 – April 9. Enjoy a RockQuest Adventure and scavenger hunt at Rock City!
