Shockoe Fest 2014 kicks off in the Bottom

Posted: Updated:

After Shamrock the Block moved to it's new location on the Boulevard this year, the Shockoe Bottom Neighborhood Association and area business owners decided to celebrate the holiday with the debut of Shockoe Fest.

The festival was held Saturday at the 17th Street Farmer's Market and featured plenty of food, live music, dancing and beer.

Shockoe Fest 2014 also featured a bar crawl.

Organizers say despite Shamrock the Block's relocation this year, they wanted to make sure the tradition of a St. Patrick's Day celebration continued in Shockoe Bottom.
