Radapalooza - LasCruces.com

Celebrating the first ever Radapalooza on St. Patrick’s Day 2023, Party Tenders and Rad Retrocade present a full day of music and fun on the plaza. Country music sensation Shane Profitt will headline the event, which includes food trucks, beer gardens, Irish food, dancing, jugglers, stilt walkers, and more in a desert green party atmosphere. The St. Paddy’s Day Radapalooza takes place Friday March 17, 2023, from 6 p.m. – midnight, on the Plaza de Las Cruces.

Open to all ages, there will be plenty of activities for young and old alike. Bring your folding chairs, umbrellas, and blankets, but no outside food or drink, or anything that could be harmful to other guests, please. Attendees are encouraged to bring cash for this event, in order to avoid the long lines at the available ATMs. Beer gardens serving bottled and green beer will be available for 21+ with valid ID.

Stars of the Evening

A salt of the earth Southerner with a straight-shooting swagger and kind smile, Shane Profitt’s musical toolbox is full of all-natural talent. The emerging artist recently debuted his boots-on-the-ground writing style and big, barrel-chested voice with a three-song collection called Maury County Line. With tracks like the hook filled honky tonker Better Off Fishin’, chest-thumping charmer Guys Like Me, and his hopeful heaven-on-earth Country radio single How It Oughta Be, Profitt puts his life to music – along with the lives of so many others. And this is just the beginning.

Sponsored by the afore-mentioned Party Tenders and Rad Retrocade, other partners bringing this unique holiday event to downtown Las Cruces include D2 Designs, Admiral Distributing, Premier Distributing, National Distributing, Shaharazad Booth Attorney at Law, Visit Las Cruces, LasCruces.com, Neighbors Magazine, KRWG Public Media, Las Cruces Bulletin, Las Cruces Sun-News, and KHEY-FM El Paso 96.3.
