For more than two decades, shamROCK has returned year after year to turn San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter into the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The annual  Shamrock block party in San Diego is a unique experience that is well worth going to whether you plan a trip specifically for this reason or happen to be in town at the same time.

What Makes shamROCK the Party of the Year?

More than 20,000 people are counted in attendance at the shamROCK block party in San Diego every year on March 17, turning the downtown streets into a sea of green. Three stages are set up to allow partygoers to revel in a variety of musical sounds from DJ’s, Celtic bands, and Irish rock artists as they sip on cold green suds and Irish whiskey concoctions.

Event Details

The event takes over approximately 50,000 square feet of space in the Gaslamp Quarter and East Village areas from 6:00PM until midnight. General admission tickets are $35, and for $80 you can receive VIP status, which will grant you VIP entry, access to separate bathrooms, seven complimentary drinks, a discount at the Lucky Leprechaun VIP Bar, and entrance to an exclusive lounge. One of shamROCK’s newest attractions is the ability to create a custom pub crawl, which provides drink tickets that can be redeemed in over 20 participating locations.
