GREENSBORO, NC – Celebrate all things green on the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day in LeBauer Park. Greensboro Downtown Parks’ annual family-friendly festival is taking the green theme a little further this year by pairing some traditional St. Patty’s entertainment with activities promoting sustainability and a connection to nature in the urban park environment.

Attendees will enjoy performances from the Walsh Kelley School of Irish Dancing, the Walker St. Fiddlers, Michael Holian’s Bagpipes, and Viva La Muerte’s Play Dead (Grateful Dead) for the Planet. Interactive components for the day include a storybook dance class for children with Bella Ballerina Studio, a Doga-Yoga class with Pet Lifestyle Coach Megan Blake, a Free Range Playground using all recycled materials, presented in partnership with Reconsidered Goods, along with crafts, games, and more.

The event will include a vendor market and food from Cilantro Mexican Cuisine and Bruster’s Real Ice Cream food trucks, as well as PorterHouse Burger Co. and Ghassan’s Fresh Mediterranean Eats.

The event will take place on Sun., Mar. 15 from 11:00am to 5:00pm in LeBauer Park.
