St. Patrick's Day weekend is going to kick off in a huge way. Why? Because the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds is once again holding its annual St. Patrick's Day Bash, the biggest St. Patrick's Day party in the Quad Cities, maybe in the world.

St. Patrick's Day is on Sunday this year but we'll get you all the drunk, green fun the two days before the actual holiday at MVF with live music, beer, food, and more.
