Looking for a prime spot to view the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Five Points South? Join Young Pioneers at their patio party!
Young Pioneers are in their second year of celebrating the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Five Points South and will be partnering with Zydeco to host a viewing party for the parade on Saturday, March 17. The viewing party will take place on Zydeco’s patio, with festivities set to begin at 1:30 p.m.
Young Pioneers is a group of young professionals dedicated to connecting people and businesses that are making a difference in Birmingham. Supported by REV Birmingham, the Young Pioneers are bringing together Birmingham’s future leaders with the influencers, risk-takers and business owners who have been instrumental in our city’s successes, to share their passions, celebrate triumphs and create vibrancy within the Magic City.
Zydeco has created an all-day celebration around the St. Pat’s parade. This event is the first of its kind for Zydeco and falls in line with the mission of the Young Pioneers: to pioneer growth by creating vibrancy in unique, urban places throughout the Magic City.
Tickets are $20 if ordered in advance using an access code, or $22 if purchased at the door. Purchase of a ticket gives you:
- An all-day pass, which includes access to the patio during the parade
- Food and drink specials, together with live music from DJ Irish
- Unlimited come-and-go access, including the ability to stay for the concerts (Kevin Griffin of Better than Ezra at 9 pm and local Irish Band, Hooley, at 10 pm)
Zydeco has graciously agreed to donate $5 per ticket sold to the Young Pioneers in support of their ongoing service projects in Ensley. Additionally, a portion of all drink sales will be similarly donated, so invite as many people as you can to support the cause!
