Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Since 1997, Fadó Irish Pub & Restaurant (Fadó) brings the biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebration to Austin, and with a colossal two day event planned, this year is no different. With St. Patrick’s Day landing on a Sunday, Fadó is set to celebrate with a legendary two-day bash filled with the best mix of Irish music, food and entertainment in the city. March 16 will kick off the festivities with “St. Practice Day” featuring the annual 6 Nations Rugby Tournament early in the day followed by a full evening of live music, European draught and traditional Irish food. Doors open bright and early on March 17 at 9 a.m. to the biggest St. Patrick’s Day party in Austin. Join Jason and Dev from 101x as they kick off St. Paddy’s Day 2013 with live broadcast from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. including traditional Irish breakfast, special guests and giveaways. The outdoor festival on two stages starts at noon with Irish dancers, Pipe and Drums and live music until late.

As expected, the authentic Irish pub will proudly begin celebrating St. Patrick’s Day long before March 17.

About Fadó Irish Pub and Restaurant
Fadó Irish Pub and Restaurant was introduced to Austin in 1997 by a team of Irish and Irish-American entrepreneurs. Their goal was simple: bring the feeling and spirit of Ireland's pub culture to the States along with great Guinness, high quality food, and an environment where staff were free to be themselves and customers could escape from the day to day. Fadó Austin does just that, bringing an authentic Irish experience to the eclectic vibe of downtown Austin. For questions and information, call 512.457.0172 or visit the website.
