3 Days Music Festival in Chicago for St. Patrick's Day
(Submitted) Perhaps no other Chicagoland Irish Pub embodies the true spirit of Ireland more than Peggy Kinnane's Irish Restaurant and Pub. To celebrate 10 years, Peggy Kinnane's is spreading that Irish spirit with a huge 3-Day Music Festival, kicking off on St. Patrick's day, Thursday, March 17th and running through Saturday, March 19th.
The commemorative bash is destined to be the hottest ticket in Chicagoland, with performances all day-every day from top local and national acts.
"I wanted to celebrate our 10th Anniversary as a cornerstone in the revitalization of downtown Arlington Heights in a unique way," says Derek Hanley, Music Fest organizer and owner of Peggy Kinnane's. "So I thought why not create a huge music festival not only to commemorate our anniversary, but also our community and the Irish heritage, in which music is so important."
The Music Fest is a great way to escape cabin fever and get outside under giant heated big top tents packed with entertainment. The setting – Arlington Heights – boasts a charming downtown that has turned into a vibrant hub, chock full of appealing architecture, retail, dining and entertainment. Peggy Kinnane's is pulling off a bash unlike anything the town has ever seen, with three full days of live, top notch music, great food & drink and good time frills.
The talent lineup features live music from 1pm to 11pm Thursday and Saturday and 5pm – 11pm on Friday, capped off with a national act every evening, including Celtic rock superstars Scythian, alt-rock Gods Sister Hazel, and 80s southern rock powerhouse 38 Special.
