Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at The Caverns

Bring the family out as this subterranean venue in Grundy Co. hosts a St. Patrick’s Day celebration on Friday, March 17.

Caves have long been a part of Irish folklore and mythology since ancient times, so what better place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, March 17 than inside one? The Caverns will host a St. Patrick’s Day Celebration with traditional Irish music. Performers include The Nashville Celts and The Caverns Irish Dancers. In addition, enjoy delicious Irish food and refreshments and more.

Headliners The Nashville Celts combine traditional Irish instrumentation with original song craft. The ensemble is comprised of singer and fiddler Maggie Lander; Ric Blair on vocals, guitar, piano, bodhran; Fiachra O’Regan on uilleann pipes, whistle and tenor banjo; and Matt Menefee on five-string banjo, mandolin, dobro and vocals. 

What’s more, this underground St. Patrick’s Day celebration includes a high energy, high stepping performance by The Caverns Irish Dancers, as well as musical performances by special guests as the evening progresses.  

Throughout the night, guests will have the opportunity to purchase and enjoy traditional Irish dishes cooked right on the spot. And of course, what would St. Patrick’s Day be without Irish beer? The Caverns Tavern bar will be stocked with Guinness.
