The best St. Patrick's celebration in the Hudson Valley is just over a week away. A week and a day, to be exact. It's Paddy on the River, and it will be at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie on March 10 from 11am to 5pm.

Paddy on the River is a true Irish celebration with traditional Irish food, vendors, Irish beer, and more.  Plus great live Irish music from Ireland the Band, The Mighty Ploughboys, Derek Dempsey, and McGroovin'. And Waryas Park is within walking distance to the Poughkeepsie Train Station you can hop on a train and not worry about driving. Paddy on the River will be warm even if it's cold outside. We have tents and heaters. Children are welcome, and kids under 10 are free. Only those 21 and over will be permitted in the beer garden.

Start off St. Patrick's week the right way. At Paddy on the River at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie on March 10. If you don't have your tickets yet, you better hurry. Get your tickets here, and we'll see you at The Paddy.
