Join 20,000 festival attendees in the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter, as they rock their best “jig” at Bud Light shamROCK 2015, presented by Jameson and The Field. shamROCK 2015 will take place Saturday, March 14, 2015 from 4:00 PM until Midnight. All leprechauns in attendance will be engulfed into an Irish haven at this year’s celebration as we re-create a 150-foot Irish Pub in the streets like no one has ever seen before, a lighting extravaganza on the surrounding buildings and much more!

The final stage will be located next to the 150-foot Irish pub and will play host to Irish River Dancers and your favorite San Diego and Los Angeles DJs.

The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation (the Foundation) is the “curator” of the Gaslamp Quarter – a 16 1/2 block area listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Through exhibits, tours, festivals and educational programs for children and adults, the Foundation opens a window to the past by depicting the historical development of downtown San Diego.
The Foundation operates the oldest standing residence in the Gaslamp Quarter, the William Heath Davis House Museum, a repository of artifacts, photos and archives that we seek to preserve for residents and visitors from throughout the world. Formed in 1981, the Foundation is a not-for-profit California corporation recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization. Contributions to it are tax-deductible as allowable by law. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that shares an appreciation of the historical significance of the district and brings enthusiasm and commitment in carrying out the Foundation’s mission. The Board sets policy and oversees the operations of both the Foundation and the house museum. There are two full-time staff members, an Executive Director and an Operations Manage, and a part-time Administrator/Curator. In addition, there are numerous volunteers who are the life-blood of the Foundation.
The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation is the only organization in existence which provides San Diego residents and visitors with the tools, resources and means to learn about and enjoy the vast history of one of the finest historic districts in the United States.
