River O'Green Fest is BACK! ☘️
Join us for the 2023 River O’Green Fest, presented by Grow Financial Federal Credit Union, on Saturday, March 18, 2023 in the beautiful Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.
In celebration of St Patrick's Day, the Hillsborough River will go green starting at 11am. Arrive early to watch the river-dyeing.
The river provides a perfect backdrop to the Irish-themed celebration that includes live entertainment, games, kids activities, food trucks, and of course, beer!
