Waterfront Partnership is looking forward to seeing everyone at the 4th Annual Shamrock Shindig Sunday, March 15th from 10:30am to 2pm! The event will take place at Pierce’s Park, located on Pier 5 – adjacent to the Pier 5 Hotel.
Getting to Pierce’s Park If you live in Federal Hill, Ridgley’s Delight, Fells Point, Little Italy, Harbor East, etc. we highly recommend walking! Please remember that there will be major road closures due to the parade. If you choose to drive, we recommend parking in the lot located at 400 South Central Ave (corner of Bank and Central across the street from Heavy Seas Ale House) as it is $3 for the entire day. There is also another $3 lot at 805 South Caroline Street in Fells Point. Pierce’s Park is also close to the garages in Harbor East - located at 650 South Exeter Street (Maryland Athletic Club/ Landmark Theatres/ Starbucks) and 1001 Fleet Street (Whole Foods Market). Please consider "A Smarter Way To Get There", by taking public transporation to the event such as the Charm City Circulator, the Baltimore Water Taxi, the Light Rail or the Metro.
Check-In There will be a will call table and ticket sales table. Please have your ID ready to expedite the process. You DO NOT NEED TO PRINT OUT YOUR TICKETS/ CONFIRMATION/ RECEIPT. We will have a list onsite. If you have friends who did not purchase wristbands or kids passes we will be selling them at the event while supplies last. We do strongly suggest that people purchase passes in advance here.

The 60th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade The parade will kick-off at 2 PM from the Washington Monument, travels down North Charles Street and then continues on to Pratt Street. Pierce’s Park is just a block and a half away from the parade route. Shamrock Shindig will end at 2pm to give you plenty of time to grab a spot for the parade.
