Celebrate the luck of the Irish on Main Street with food, live music, green beer and adult yard games during City of Yuma Heritage Festivals’ Music on Main festival, 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday, March 16 in historic downtown Yuma.

The festival features a St. Patrick’s Day Block Party, presented by Da Boyz, and coincides with local merchants putting on a pub crawl.

“We have been focused on the overall theme of each event, the experience patrons receive when attending and the quality of vendors that attend,” said City of Yuma Marketing Specialist Carrie Ring. “In this case, it’s the tie-in with St. Patrick’s Day and the merchants’ pub crawl. Each Heritage Festival is unique in its own way. That is something we are very proud of.”

Enjoy live entertainment by Mellobean, Beg 2 Differ, Random Article and Rated R, plus a high-energy DJ will play in between sets. There will also be yard games and food vendors.

“Downtown will be buzzing with fun festivities for all ages,” said Heritage Festival Coordinator Joanne Fiser. Our Kid Zone is always a big hit and the dancing tunes will be playing all night. We have an Irish surprise you won’t want to miss. Sport your shamrock green and enjoy some green beer.”
