An Annual Tradition

Join us for the 9th Annual Mayor’s River O’Green Fest, presented by Grow Financial, on Saturday, March 14, 2020, beginning at 11am! In partnership with the City of Tampa, this signature event of the Tampa Downtown Partnership takes place in the beautiful Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.

The Irish-themed party is centered around the Hillsborough River, which will be transformed into a bright shade of green for the occasion. The river provides a perfect backdrop to the celebration which includes live entertainment, games, kids activities, food trucks, and of course, beer!

We will kick off the festivities in the morning with the River O' Green Gallop, a fun run/walk along the Riverwalk and continue with a family scavenger hunt, a Leprechaun costume contest, as well as the River O'Green Scavenger Hunt for adults. Everyone who brings 3 non-perishables or a $10 donation for the Salavation Army will also receive a free "St. Patrick's Army" tee-shirt. The entire family is welcome, including four-legged members!



Thank you to the generous sponsors of the Mayor's River O' Green Fest. Their support makes this fun, free, family-friendly event possible. Cheers to them!
