Your taste buds will enjoy authentic Irish food and a selection of different options from local food cart vendors lined along the street. Ireland’s famous Guinness beer will be flowing in the beer garden along with other local favorites.
Each year we have hundreds of visitors from the local Sellwood/Moreland and outlining communities.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival initially began as a dinner and festival for the school and parish of St. Agatha back in 1998. Irish dancers’ were invited to entertain the crowds and a traditional Irish dinner and homemade soda bread was served to all. The children of St. Agatha started their very own parade, encompassing only a few blocks around the school. Fellow student and bagpiper Sophie McDuffy led the parade each year, until she graduated in 2006. Over the years, the Festival and Parade has grown and flourished as we have opened our festival up to the entire Sellwood/Moreland community and beyond.
