Lucky or Not, Murphys CA Irish Day is the Place to Be
Our historic, gold-rush town is always a great place to visit, but on the third Saturday in March every year, right around St. Patrick’s Day, we turn into a festival of all things Irish. Paying tribute to our Celtic roots, Murphys downtown Main Street fills with all the joy and luck of the Irish. Thousands of people come every year to celebrate with us!
Irish Eyes are Always Smiling at Irish Day
The day starts with a delicious pancake breakfast. After breakfast, you’ll begin to hear bagpipes as they lead a giant parade through the town. The parade has marching bands, classic cars, gorgeous horses and more. You might even see a leprechaun or two. We have so much fun watching the parade and cheering for our favorites!
Shamrocking the Whole Day
The parade is just the start of the festivities that last the whole day. One lucky raffle ticket will win the buyer a trip for two to Ireland! There is nonstop entertainment all day – singers, jugglers, dancers and more! Along our Main Street, there are booths filled with art, handcrafted Irish items, tasty food and of course, lots of Irish drinks. Murphys Irish Day is one of our communities top fundraisers! Our hope is that this fun-filled event will become a new tradition for our new friends, bringing you back year after year.
