St. Patrick's Day Downtown Street Festival
Join Downtown Wichita Falls Development for the Saint Patrick’s Day Street Festival. The event will be Saturday, March 12.
This annual celebration promotes downtown and Irish culture.
This year's concert will include Ian Moore and the Lossy Coils. Moore is a prolific singer-songwriter who gained popularity as a guitar prodigy. Winner of seven Austin Music Awards including "Best Musician", "Best Band" and "Best Electric Guitarist," he has opened tours for the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and ZZ Top. The Lossy Coils, features Moore, bassist Matt Harris, and drummer Kyle Schneider.
The festival will also feature The Dirty River Boys. The band generates an energetic blend of tight narrative songs, bluegrass drive, multi-part vocal harmonies, gospel passion, and a solid dose of rock & roll attitude into a potent mix that is all the more amazing for being entirely acoustic.
You can also expect an exciting reunion from one of Wichita Falls’ most beloved bands, bigloo. After an 8 year hiatus, the band will return to their hometown to perform their unique brand of eclectic rock. The band will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their creation and playing crowd favorites spanning the entire catalog of their multifaceted career.
Expect an exciting announcement about our featured Irish entertainment soon.
