What's Happening at Lexington's Largest St. Patrick's Day Party

8th Annual Oyster Roast and St. Patrick's Day Party

Thanks to Southern First Bank and Wellmore of Lexington, the 8th Annual Oyster Roast and St. Patrick's Day Party on Thursday, March 16 at the Icehouse Amphitheater is going to be one of the most talked-about parties in Lexington.

Tickets are $50 each and here's why that will be well worth the experience that you and your friends will have on that cool, spring night. Member of the Greater Lexington Chamber? Contact Connor Watkins to learn how to receive 10% off your tickets.

Once you register with the Greater Lexington Chamber staff and volunteers, you'll enter the Icehouse Amphitheater to find what you came for right in front of you. The first tent you see will have tables filled with everything you need to enjoy your oysters - knives, towels, condiments, crackers and a five-gallon bucket for the shells. Volunteers from Clark's Termite and Pest Control will be cooking and serving oysters around the clock so that everyone can enjoy a bushel of their own.

Not really an oyster person? While your friends are shucking shells, you can head over to grab food from Travinia Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, Tin Lizzy's Cantina, The Wolf Pizza Co or  Belly's Southern Pride BBQ & Catering. Any of their menu items will melt in your mouth!

After you get your entree of choice, pair it with cold beer, glass of wine, soft drink or water before you make your way to your seat to hear the night's entertainment. Tokyo Joe, one of the fastest rising bands in the Southeast, will bring great music through some of the most highly skilled, energetic musicians in the business. From originals to catchy covers, Tokyo Joe will give the night's audience exactly what they want to hear.

To commemorate the night, squeeze into the Palmetto Party Booth for a photo shoot! Don't forget to share your own photos from the night with #stpatslexsc. Follow and tag the Greater Lexington Chamber on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so we can see and share all your fun moments.

When you need to give your legs a break from dancing, visit Topper's Rhum to try some of their award-winning rum flavors or cleanse your palate with a scoop JB's Proof Alcohol Ice Cream. From flavors like peach rum and apple-pie moonshine to their new vanilla bourbon, you'll wonder why you haven't had ice cream this good before that evening.

Before you leave the celebration, find a safe ride home either with a taxi outside the exits of the amphitheater or an Uber. Have a friend who drives for Uber? Share this event with them on Facebook!

Now that you know about the fun your going to have, don't wait to get your tickets. While they are $50 in advance, they're $60 at the door. That is, if we don't sell out! Buy your tickets today and we'll see you March 16!
