As March rolls around, the vibrant city of Charlotte, North Carolina, gears up to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style. From lively parades to festive events, the Queen City offers a plethora of activities to honor the Irish spirit. Among the most anticipated events are the Green River Revival at the U.S. National Whitewater Center and the Spring Fling Festival & Parade at Baxter Village in nearby Fort Mill. Let's take a closer look at these exciting celebrations that add a touch of green to the Carolina landscape.


Green River Revival at the Whitewater Center:

The U.S. National Whitewater Center transforms into a hub of St. Patrick's Day festivities during its annual Green River Revival. This unique event combines outdoor adventure with Irish-themed entertainment, promising a day of fun for all ages.

The highlight of the Green River Revival is undoubtedly the dyeing of the river itself. Just as the Chicago River turns emerald green on St. Patrick's Day, the Whitewater Center's river adopts a vibrant green hue, creating a stunning sight against the backdrop of the lush greenery. Visitors can witness this spectacle from various vantage points along the riverbanks or opt to paddle along the water for a closer look.


In addition to the river dyeing, the Green River Revival features a lineup of activities designed to celebrate Irish culture and outdoor adventure. Attendees can enjoy live music performances with a Celtic twist, indulge in Irish-inspired cuisine and beverages, and participate in outdoor activities such as whitewater rafting, power yoga in the forest, and two separate 5K Trail Runs! Families can also join in the fun with kid-friendly activities like face painting and scavenger hunts.


Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast, a music lover, or simply looking for a unique way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the Green River Revival celebration offers an unforgettable experience in the heart of Charlotte's natural beauty.


Spring Fling Festival & Parade at Baxter Village:

Just across the state line in Fort Mill, South Carolina, the Spring Fling Festival & Parade at Baxter Village adds a touch of Irish charm to this quaint suburban community. This family-friendly event captures the essence of St. Patrick's Day with its festive parade, lively entertainment, and vibrant atmosphere.


The Spring Fling Festival takes center stage in Baxter Village's picturesque town center. Festival goers can enjoy a variety of activities including live music performances, Irish bagpipers, and artisanal vendors with everything from handmade crafts to delicious treats.  The town will be covered in green while locals come together to celebrate.  

For the younger attendees, the festival boasts an array of interactive games, inflatables, and face painting stations.  Stop by our team booth to say hello and grab an ice cold lemonade in our Compass Charlotte Real Estate cups that change color!  The evening culminates in a spectacular St. Patrick's Day Parade with decorated floats, Jeeps, golf carts, and Schriner's Clowns.
