St. Pat’s in Five Points Columbia

Saturday, March 19 @ 7:30 am - 7:00 pm


Celebrating 40 years in 2022!

Steeped in tradition, this year’s event will be no different! Whether you’re wanting to enjoy the parade with your family, jam to live music with friends, or get your kids in on the fun, there’s something for everyone at St. Pat’s in Five Points! 

St. Pat’s in Five Points celebrates all things green and Gaelic, welcomes the arrival of spring, and promotes the businesses in the Five Points village. Our festival is also the Midlands’ largest annual street festival and the biggest one-day St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the Southeast!

St. Pat’s in Five Points was established in 1983 by Five Points merchants and other local businessmen to increase the visibility of Five Points businesses when Columbians were leaving town to go to Savannah for their week-long St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Today, the festival is put on and managed by the Five Points Association (FPA) with assistance from a committee formed by individuals within the Columbia community.

The FPA will continue to embrace its marquee event, with a focus on Irish authenticity, diverse band selection and quality special events throughout the day.
