St. Patrick's Day in Augusta

From early morning dance parties to the downtown parade and concerts, there are plenty of ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day around Augusta's River Region. 


Augusta's St. Patrick's Day Parade

The City of Augusta will be “rolling out the Green Carpet” downtown to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! The St. Patrick’s Day Parade begins at 2 p.m. as is immediately followed by a festival on the Augusta Common. The parade is free and for all ages and begins at 2 p.m. from the 7th Street James Brown Arena parking lot. The parade will take our traditional route to Telfair St., up to 11th, then turning right onto Broad Street, and then back down to 6th Street where we will return to the James Brown Arena Parking lot.

Augusta's St. Patrick's Day Festival

Immediately following the parade through downtown Augusta, a FREE festival will take place at the Augusta Common! Friends With Benefits Productions is thrilled to partner with the Irish-American Heritage Society and the City of Augusta for this family-friendly community event.


Wake & Shake: St. Patrick's Day Edition

Get up and get moving at Humanitree House for a morning of dancing and fun. Grab a juice or something from the breakfast menu before catching the parade downtown.

Beer Yoga

Come on down to Savannah River Brewing, Co. - grab a few pints and get a good workout in! Admission includes the yoga class and beer First time attendees should arrive at 11 a.m. to allow time to fill out the waiver and secure a spot.

Bend and Brew

Bend & Brew Yoga  at The Alley Downtown Taproom in Aiken is donation based. This is a community that is light-hearted and fun regardless of your budget. What to Bring: We DO NOT provide yoga mats or props. Please remember to bring whatever you may need for your practice, but most definitely a mat! We are usually outside, so may need extra padding for your knees.


Augusta Market at the River

Every Saturday at the 8th Street Bulkhead on Augusta's Riverwalk, come and explore hand made art, jewelry and crafts, local produce and baked goods and enjoy breakfast and coffee or lunch from local food vendors. Musicians from Augusta's River Region set the mood with live music. Runners can meet for a morning run with the Triple 8 Run Group. During warm weather, kids can play in the fountain. Pets on a leash are welcome.
