4th West Fest
March 17 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Mountain West Cider and Red Rock Brewing will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day together again on 4th West this year. The celebration, officially titled “4th West Fest,” will be held on Saturday, March 17th at 425 N. 400 W. in Salt Lake City Utah, after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The event will feature Mountain West hard ciders and Red Rock’s craft beers. And new this year, the 4th West Fest will also feature Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, which will be for sale during the festival running from 11am-6pm, that day.
4th West Fest will include live music from local artists The Dunmore Lasses, and John Flanders Trio. The Dunmore Lasses fuse traditional Irish/Scottish music with a touch of rock and world music. They headlined the Celtic Celebration at Peery’s Egyptian Theater and have opened for Wicked Tinkers and Molly’s Revenge. The band has also played festivals headlined by Old Blind Dogs & Alasdair Fraser.
John Flanders has been one of the most in-demand saxophone/woodwind players in Salt Lake City and the Intermountain West for over a decade. John Flanders and his trio has opened and headlined for many jazz festivals in Colorado and Utah, including the Salt Lake City and Park City Jazz Festivals.
Local food trucks including Shylo’s Mobile Café, Gerlach’s, and Marmalade Coffee Co., are scheduled to serve at the event. There will also be samples of local goods from Indulge Eats, Giant Taste-Skinny Waist, and Garwood’s Ginger Beer, among others.
Community partners will be in attendance, including City Weekly, Yelp, 4th West Apartments, and Axis T Events – who will have fun games and giveaways for those who stop by. Local goods and services will be available from Beautiful Uprising, Living Canvas Henna, Paul Marto, Jr., Crazy for Coconuts, Perfectly Posh, Kayla’s Nails, and Paint Mixer.
Games such as cornhole, giant jenga will provide more entertainment for festival-goers. And a children’s craft table stocked with coloring pages and crayons is available exclusively for the young ones. St. Patrick’s Day parade-goers can hop on a free trolley, sponsored by Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, in front of the Gallivan Center’s Good Grammar – speak e-z and bar – to get to the 4th West Fest. The trolley will run to and from both locations from 10:30am-3:30pm.
Due to overwhelming success during past 4th West Fest events, Mountain West Cider and Red Rock Brewing are looking forward to many more successful collaborative events in years to come. 4th West Fest – St. Patrick’s Day, will be the fifth event jointly organized by the two companies.
General admission for the event is free for all ages. Only those 21+ will be served alcohol.
