The San Diego ShamROCK Music + Beer Festival returns to the Gaslamp Quarter on St. Paddy’s Day, Friday, March 17, 2023, from 4PM-11PM. New this year, ShamROCK will be accessible to ALL AGES.

For 27 years, locals and tourists alike have flocked to the Gaslamp Quarter as ShamROCK transforms the bustling San Diego downtown neighborhoods into a Celtic carnival with an abundance of pub-style seating, flowing green beer, traditional Irish steppers, activities, Celtic rock bands, photo-ops and games through out the Gaslamp.

In addition to a multi-block music and entertainment lineup (stages will feature live entertainment from 4pm – 11pm), ShamROCK block party attendees will be welcome to enjoy FREE games throughout the day at the ShamROCK Shenanigans Block. Giant Jenga, Cornhole, and giant beer pong are just some of the shenanigans that will test your skill and luck.

General Admission tickets start at just $39 for a day full of festivities, non-stop music, and a keepsake ShamROCK stein. VIP tickets start at just $89 and include 4 drinks, VIP dedicated entry, exclusive access to the Lucky Leprechaun VIP Irish Pub, festive Saint Patrick’s Day hat, upgraded restrooms, and other benefits to be announced.

The GQHF also runs the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House, the oldest building in Downtown San Diego.
