Join us for a free, family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day Festival featuring a leprechaun scavenger hunt for kids, family photo booth, beer and wine concessions, food trucks, and live music featuring the headliner Skyrocket!, Max Flinn, and SoulDig. No outside furniture is allowed, but blankets and park chairs may be used.
Parking is available adjacent to the park and along Eastside Street and Wakeforest Avenue. Additional public parking (up to 600 spaces, parking rate applies) is available in the Kirby Grove parking garage located on the corner of Richmond and Wakeforest.
Skyrocket! is a wickedly original cabaret of "solid gold" hits from the 1970s, album favorites from the ‘80s, and great rock anthems from the best bands in the world. Inspired by the most bombastic, stylistically baffling and memorable decade in rock history, Skyrocket! nails the broad spectrum of styles, bands and star performances that made this era the best and worst of musical times. Unlike any other party band, Skyrocket! does it all with a fearless style totally its own.
Born and raised in Houston, Max Flinn performs original classic country music with a variety of cover tunes ranging from Bob Wills to Alan Jackson sprinkled in. If you like honest lyrics, fiddle, steel guitar, and two-steppin’ you’ll love Max!
SoulDig is comprised of Al Jarreau's touring guitarist, plus two members of Grammy award winning Latin stalwarts, La Mafia. John Calderon, David Delagarza III, Tim Ruiz, and Chris Axelrad present their sound as a hybrid blend of original material and funk standards, with jazz inspired solo jams.
