Celebrate St. Paddy’s day a coupla days early in Upland

OK, so St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until next Friday, but the folks at BierBuzz are getting a jump on the holiday.

They will be hosting a free St. Patrick’s Day celebration this weekend in downtown Upland.

The California Irish Festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday (March 11) and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday (March 12).

Besides beer, the family-friendly event will feature music and dance groups, bagpipers, food trucks and other food vendors. There will also be a pub crawl beginning at 2 p.m.

Beer tickets (and tickets for the pub crawl) can be purchased in advance by clicking here.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Dive Warriors and will help the Historic Downtown Upland Merchants Association revitalize downtown Upland.
