St. Patrick’s on the Hill celebration


The fourth-annual St. Patrick’s on the Hill will kick off on Saturday, March 14 with a parade at 11 a.m., followed by a full day full of music, food, beer, and fun on the Fayetteville square.

The event began in 2012, when local resident and Irish culture enthusiast Don Brown and some friends decided that Fayetteville deserved it’s own St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Brown organized a parade for that year, but the event has increased in both scope and attendance each year since.

This year, organizers are expecting more than 3,000 attendees to the event.

“I think it’s going to make that progressive step it needs to,” Brown said. “I think with the music area, the beer garden, it’s going to really start maturing into a long term event for Fayetteville.”

The parade this year will begin at the old Fayetteville City Hospital building, and it’s way up West Avenue, onto Dickson, and then up Block Street to the the square.

After that, a craft beer garden featuring six local breweries as well as several local home brewers will open at 1 p.m. Breweries scheduled to attend include Apple Blossom Brewing Co., Fossil Cove Brewing Co., Saddlebock Brewery, Core Brewing. Co., West Mountain Brewing Co., and Bike Rack Brewing Co.

The breweries and home brewers will be competing in the second annual Stout Brewing Competition, and awards will be given for both professionals and amateurs, as well as a people’s choice winner.
