“We will be celebrating this milestone event in dedication to our late father, Jim Brewer, who started this event 30 years ago.” said event organizers Brent and Brett Brewer, Jim’s sons. “This was the first outdoor place-making event that has led to the exciting renaissance we see in Downtown OKC today.”

The first Bricktown St. Patrick’s Day Block Party was held in 1990 as part of the grand opening of the former O’Brien’s Pub, and that tradition proudly continues today, as Downtown OKC’s largest St. Patrick’s Day Celebration.
