San Bernardino Festivals & Shows
The city of San Bernardino and its people always seem to embody a positive, almost celebratory mood every day of the year. That actually makes sense, in that this charming California town hosts several inviting events and annual celebrations that are a big part of keeping everyone's spirits high. So whether it is observing the significant contributions of a culture, enjoying some excellent music or observing a national event or holiday, all of the festivals and annual events that fill San Bernardino's busy calendar are not to be missed!
While there are many excellent reasons to “go green” for the environment, doing so for the St. Patrick's Day Festival
is just as appropriate. Enjoy the party every March 17th with Irish music, green beer and leprechauns. The party is orchestrated by the many talented people who are part of the California Theatre group, with many of the proceeds from this event going to fund the various productions that they present throughout the year.
