2022 Carroll St. Pat's Fest: March 11-12

We invite you to support the 7th Annual Carroll St. Pat's Fest! 

After two years of carryout-only and remote events, Carroll High School’s St. Patrick’s Week kickoff party is back in-person with more food, drinks, entertainment, and live bands than ever before!  Organized by Carroll High School Parents, the Alumni Association, and Carrolleer Band Boosters, Friday evening will be our traditional Irish Fish Fry followed by more Irish fun and festivities for all ages on Saturday.

Online Silent Auction: Thursday-Saturday

Bidding for the online silent auction items begins Thursday at 12:00 AM and ends Saturday, March 12th at 11:00 PM.  

If you are the auction bid winner, your item can be picked up from the Carroll High School Main Office Lobby on Sunday, March 13th from 2:00-6:00 PM or Monday, March 14th from 5:00-8:00 PM.  If you need to arrange a different pick-up time, please contact

Event Details

For the past two years, our St. Pat’s Fest leadership committee have made changes and adapted this much-loved event to meet the community challenges and health restrictions resulting from COVID.  We are proud to say that we made it through and our events somehow succeeded because of the caring support of our friends, such as you.  Thank you for making a difference!

Our goal for 2022 is to be as “normal” as possible; however, safety is our top priority - all is subject to change.  This event will follow the health guidelines set by the State of Ohio and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.  Advance reservations are strongly encouraged.
