(Updated at 12:20 p.m.) Revelers searching for some St. Patrick’s Day-themed pub crawl fun will have to look outside Arlington this year.
The Shamrock Crawl, once dubbed Arlington’s biggest bar-hopping event, won’t happen this year, its organizers said. When one person asked on Facebook whether this year’s crawl would come to Clarendon, a representative for Project D.C. Events, the company that puts on the annual event, responded, “not this year.”
The event still will take place in D.C., however. Tickets for the District’s Shamrock Crawl have been on sale for at least a week.
A representative for Project D.C. Events didn’t respond to requests for comment, and although it’s not clear why the Clarendon portion of the event isn’t moving forward, the cancellation could have something to do with declining attendance.
In 2015, nearly 3,700 people participated in the big green party, which was down from 5,000 revelers in 2014. Crime also declined that year, as a new bar crawl policy provided funds from organizers for a stepped-up police presence.
Despite the drop in crime, the event has in the past peeved certain local business owners as well as residents of surrounding neighborhoods, who have complained of parking issues and drunken partiers.
