The State Theatre
Free Outdoor St. Patrick’s Day Party w/ Two By Sea

Wednesday, March 17 | Doors: 5pm, Showtime 6pm

Join The State Theatre for a St. Patrick’s Day Party with Two By Sea!

Two by Sea is a folk, blues, and country-rock band from Fairfax, Virginia, USA. Formed by four friends who met a local open mic, one fan described Two by Sea as “rebel folk”, and the band has become known for its catchy original songs and energetic live performances around northern Virginia. Simply put, we love Americana, roots rock, and good old fashioned rock n’ roll. The feel-good song “Way Back Home” is Two by Sea’s debut lead single. Two by Sea’s debut EP “Welcome to the Family” was released in September 2020.

This is an all ages outdoor show. Capacity is very limited. Entry is first come, first served, so we strongly suggest showing up early.

Greater Manassas Saint Patrick’s Day Parade

September 2021

In concert with the Governor’s current guidance on addressing the COVID-19 public health issue, Inisfail, the sponsor of the Greater Manassas St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the City of Manassas decided to postpone the parade scheduled for March 13, 2021. The parade committee is working with the City to determine an available date in September 2021 suitable to have the parade. Thank you very much for your understanding and patience.

The parade boasts unique Irish flair with several pipe bands including the Alexandria Pipe and Drums, Irish dance groups, and members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Bring your family and friends (all dressed in green, of course) for this family oriented celebration of the Irish in Old Town Manassas.
