Event Details

Join us as we dye the Forsyth Park Fountain green in preparation for Savannah’s most celebrated event of the year, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Some say it was the impish work of leprechauns that initiated the Greening of the Fountain. The story goes that in the mid 1980s an unknown group, enthusiastic about the approaching parade, attempted to dye the fountain water green.

The first official Greening of the Fountain ceremony took place soon after and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee was invited to participate, blending this historic and ornate work of art with the Irish festive season.

The are now nine fountains throughout the Historic District that flow green for the annual celebration, but it is the Greening of the Forsyth Park Fountain which has become one of the many officially recognized celebrations organized by the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee leading up to the Parade.
