St. Patrick's Day Festival 2016
Saturday, March 12th
(snow date Saturday, March 19th)
Historic Olde Town Arvada continues the successful St. Patrick’s Day festival in 2015, as we again invite our community to celebrate in Olde Town. Last year’s event brought thousands of citizens onto Grandview Avenue to enjoy this fun family event. This year’s event will again be held on Grandview between Webster St and Olde Wadsworth Blvd, with a new, larger expansion area from Olde Wadsworth to 57th Avenue! The festival takes place from Noon-6pm. We will feature live bands, arts/crafts booths, food booths, kids entertainment, and beer/wine sales. Admission is FREE and the street will be closed to traffic to make this a fun and safe event for all.

Parking and Transportation
With RTD Gold Line construction in full swing, some lot spaces are no longer available. The best parking options now include the Vance Lot (on Vance St just south of Grandview Ave) and Jefferson County Library Lot on Webster. Street parking is available throughout Olde Town and surrounding streets. Many parking lots and street spaces now have time limits- please observe these limits or risk getting ticketed! Olde Town has added additional bike parking for 2015 and alternate transportation is encouraged. Visit the Healthy Places Arvada website to learn more. RTD's Trip Planner can also help plan your journey by public transportation.
Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome. However, the event area can be very crowded. Please use caution for the sake of your pet and other people.
