About the Shamrock St. Patrick's Day Festival :
The town of Shamrock gleaned its name thanks to the suggestion of an Irish imigrant back in the 1800s. Over the years, the name has certainly lent an air of Irish to the town. In 1938, the Shamrock St. Patrick's Day Festival was first staged at the suggestion of the town's bandmaster. Originally a two-day festival, the event has now grown to three days, but is still held on the weekend nearest St. Patrick's Day.
