Midtown’s Park Tavern kicks off St. Patrick’s Day festivities a week early this year with LEPRE*CON, one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day festivals in Atlanta presented by A Social Mess.
Now in its ninth year, LEPRE*CON, whose name is a riff on Atlanta’s Dragon Con, expects to host nearly 5,000 guests at an all-day bash featuring festive costumes, DJs, live bands, surprise guests and, of course, adult beverages.
“A party is much more fun when you’re wearing a costume or something funny—even just a simple green wig,” says A Social Mess Co-founder Trey Humphreys. “We offer an alternative to dull hotel parties and underwhelming VIP club experiences.”
Held from 3 p.m. until 3:30 a.m., this year’s celebration will entertain guests with multiple stages, including the Irish Spring Break Stage that engages the audience with live performances and throwback games like the limbo. “We love adding skits, contests and crowd interactions to our events,” says Humphreys. “LEPRE*CON has really grown over the years as people have come to expect the unique elements we build into our party. We are even seeing folks come in from other cities in the Southeast to attend.”
