What started as a big party in 1983 has grown to a festival of massive proportions today—each year, some 75,000 people don their finest green apparel and head to Dallas‘ Fair Park to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the largest Irish festival in the southwest. The weekend of March 2-4 will be filled with live Irish music, Celtic myth storytellers, a bevy of Irish cuisine from local chefs, sheep herding and horse demonstrations, and plenty of canines dressed up for the holiday—many Irish dogs will be available for adoption from local shelters.
