The Shamrock Shuffle is more than just the biggest St. Patrick’s Day Party in Wisconsin. It is a community event bringing people together to not only celebrate one of America’s most celebrated holidays but an event that brings thousands of people into the City of Milwaukee every year on the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day.
Last year the Shamrock Shuffle had 7,551 attendees sign up for the event. The event raised $15,000 for the charity MS Run the US. The Shamrock Shuffle also creates hundreds of jobs for bars, restaurant, security, and MPD employees on a usually quiet Saturday. The event celebrated a safe 2014 event by providing its patrons with Free Water, Food discounts and safe shuttle rides home. The organizers even hired Jani-King Cleaning Services to clean the streets of North Avenue, Water Street and Third Street following the event.
This year the event hopes to grow to over 8,000 attendees and raise over $20,000 for The Hunger Task Force. The organizers, SWARMM Events have even added a 5k run called the Jig Jog 5k happening on Milwaukee’s Lakefront that morning. There are a couple more tricks up SWARMM’s sleeves as additional information will be coming soon…..
