2024 Cape Fear Hooley Under the Bridge

Saturday, Feb 24th, 2024 and will be held at Waterline Brewing.  from 11:30am to 6 pm

Our Hooley has become almost as big of a tradition as the St. Patrick’s Day Parade itself. Come join in some of the most beloved Irish traditions—dancing, and heart-thumping music.

For 2024, the tent and seating have been expanded.  Feel free to bring your own seats to enjoy the Hooley.

Exciting News – Waterline Brewing will again brew a new batch of their “Hooley Red” for the event. An Irish Red style of Ale, rich in taste and deep in color.  Come and enjoy this Annual Release.
