Today, the organizers behind the legendary OB Oktoberfest, announced their beachside event, “St. Paddy’s O’Beach Party ”, is returning for its second year. To celebrate the Irish holiday, a handful of San Diego’s best event organizers invite the public (21+) to Ocean Beach, where Newport meets the beach, for the two-day event. Popular reggae rock band, The Expendables, along with a handful of other West Coast-based headliners are set to perform.

St. Paddy’s O’Beach Party to attract over 10,000 guests!

“After the inaugural event’s wild success, we’re coming back better than ever,” said Heather Hudson, the event’s Director of Marketing and Partnerships. “Not only does the event actually happen on March 17, but we’re extending it to two-days and bringing in headliners up and down the coast that truly embody that Southern California lifestyle. For locals looking for an event that celebrates St. Patrick’s Day, but with elements of beach culture, reggae music and a true San Diego twist, this one’s for you!”

7,500+ Party Goers Expected To Attend Inaugural St. Paddy’s O’Beach Party

The second annual beachside event is expecting over 10,000 party-goers, dressed in head to toe green, to gather at the Ocean Beach Pier Parking Lot for live music, green beer, cocktails and St. Paddy’s Day-themed games. The first 500 attendees each day will receive a special experience.
