Shamrockin in Ghent Concert

Shamrockin’ in Ghent the much anticipated annual St. Patrick’s Day Block Party in Norfolk’s historic Ghent district. The event launches the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Thousands of people come out to celebrate with live music from The Fighting Jamesons. The Tidewater Pipes and Drums kick off the event on the street. There are beer trucks, Irish whiskey and local food vendors.

Shamrockin’ in Ghent was previously called the Greening of Ghent. Hope House Foundation is proud to keep this long standing tradition going in our community.

If you are interested in volunteering we have two shifts for beer pouring. The 1st shift is 5:45pm-8:00pm, and the 2nd shift is 7:45pm-10:00pm. Please sign-up at this link:
