Party people, it’s time for everyone’s favorite mid-March excuse to drink good beer, eat some fish and chips, and enjoy some Irish entertainment! Yup: the Mighty Festival for St. Patrick’s Day kicks off today and continues through March 17 and 18 at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant!
This is THE ST. PATRICK’S DAY FESTIVAL YOU WANT TO GO TO. TRUST ME.
Let’s check out what’s happening!
Raglan Road is ready, as you can see from the banners and signage announcing the vibrant festival! St. Patrick’s Day is a carefree celebration of family and friends, and Raglan Road is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy some togetherness.
The Mighty Festival runs from March 16-March 18, so if you’re in the area, you’ll want to high step over to Raglan Road for it all!
We hit you with the details earlier this month, and now we’ve got a sneak peak of the goods thanks to a media event held at Raglan Road. The event was festive, with plenty of green (and orange and white!) to don.
This gear will be available during the Festival, so guests will be able to grab some festive flare!!
The Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival features the innovative Irish cuisine for which the restaurant is known, plus loads of entertainment both inside and out! The indoor stage is all lit up!
Bands like Elevation (a U2 Tribute Band) will keep the party going throughout the Mighty Festival!
The Maguires are in town just for the Festival, in fact, and include dad Phillip on the guitar, daughter Emma on the fiddle, daughter Aoife on the concertina, and son Sean on the bodhran. They’re straight out of Wicklow, Ireland, and ready to party!
And of course the Raglan Road Irish Dancers are always energetic and fun!
And naturally, there will be beer. The sample poured for the media event was King of Shoals, and it’s from Winter Garden, FL, brewery Crooked Can. This beer is exclusive to Raglan Road for the Festival, and it’s delicious. Fruity and tropical, it’s terrific for the central Florida Mighty Festival. Fans of Schofferhofer will like this refreshing brew.
Be sure to grab the Rack of Heaven, a starter stack of Baby Back Ribs, slow-roasted and Guinness-Glazed! These are popular for a reason! They’re delicious and sweet in a good way!
Traditional Fish and Chips are a huge hit here — deservedly so.
And on our last visit, we loved Gnocchi Sea, Gnocchi Do. This light-yet-filling dish features some pillowy gnocchi and lots of fresh seafood and veg!
Y’all, the Mighty Festival is so fun, and with Raglan Road’s spectacular dining and loads of exciting entertainment, there’s no better time to visit this Disney Springs location!
