Live Music, Beer and Irish Cuisine Headline Atlanta’s Best Green Party
from Atlantic Station, Radio 105.7 and Meehan's Public House

ATLANTA (Feb. 19, 2016) – Get ready for an Irish celebration so fun you'll pinch yourself! Shamrock the Station, Atlanta’s premier St. Patrick’s Day music festival, will fill Midtown’s Atlantic Station on Saturday, March 12, with the sights and sounds of everyone’s favorite green holiday. Complete with live music, dancing, beer and delicious Irish cuisine, the festivities are courtesy of Meehan’s Public House, Radio 105.7 and Guinness.

"Shamrock the Station is hands-down the biggest and best St. Patrick's Day music festival in Atlanta," said Philip Roness, owner of Meehan's Public House. "We've got bands like The Strumbellas that you normally have to travel all the way to Austin to see at SXSW, but because of our event partners like Radio 105.7 and Guinness, they're coming to Atlanta to party with us."      

Guests of all ages will enjoy a day of high-energy live music starting at 1 p.m. from All The Locals, Transviolet, Declan McKenna, The Strumbellas, Grizfolk and headliner JR JR, all on the main stage in Atlantic Station’s Central Park. Bring the little leprechauns for a live Irish dancing demonstration courtesy of the Mulligan School of Irish Dance at 2:30 p.m. 

Best of all, you don’t need to spend a lot of green to enjoy this charming, all-ages neighborhood festival. Shamrock the Station is free and open to the public starting at 11 a.m. A $5 wristband allows adults 21 and older to purchase drinks outside in Central Park.

Festival-goers will also want to fuel up at Meehan's Public House throughout the day. Atlanta’s favorite authentic Irish eatery and watering hole is the perfect spot to enjoy a frosty beverage and a menu of classic Irish dishes elevated to the level of gourmet cuisine—without spending a pot of gold in the process. The restaurant is serving a limited menu of Irish specials and traditional fare like shepherd’s pie, fish and chips and Meehan’s own corned beef Reuben, as well as drink specials featuring Guinness, Harp, Smithwick’s, Guinness Nitro IPA, Absolut, Bacardi and Jack Daniel’s.

Shamrock the Station is presented by Atlantic Station, Radio 105.7 and Meehan’s Public House, and sponsored by Guinness, Guinness Nitro IPA, Absolut, Bacardi and Jack Daniel’s.
