The St. Patrick's Day Parade and Charlotte Goes Green Festival attracted capacity crowds in 2017 and it's expected that 2018 will see the same.

 

The Queen City has a rich Irish heritage as Charlotte was developed by a wave of migration of Scotch-Irish/Scots-Irish Presbyterians (Ulster-Scot settlers from Northern Ireland) in the early 18th Century, who dominated the culture of the Southern Piedmont Region. Want to know more about Charlotte's Irish heritage and cultural activities?

Nina Hollander - This all sounds like so much fun! Your community is lucky to have the Walsh Kelley School of Irish Dance! What a treat for the students to learn the proper way to do the Irish Jig and other great dance moves. I think Charlotte is going to be very green and good for all on St. Paddy's Day!!!

Clarksville is also called the Queen City. The St. Paddy's Day events will be so enjoyable and may the streets be filled with joyful revelers.

Debbie Reynolds ~ hi Debbie... how interesting. Why is Clarksville called the Queen City? Charlotte is named after Queen Charlotte of England, who before her marriage to King George was a German Princess from Mecklenburg... and hence the name of the county where Charlotte is situated (Mecklenburg). So when we say Queen City we are referring to Charlotte's orgins.
