Last year, the 2018 Shamrock Shuffle raised
$10,000 for the Hunger Task Force and Special Olympics of Wisconsin
The Shamrock Shuffle is more than just the biggest St. Patrick’s Day themed Party in Wisconsin. It is a community event which brings people together to not only celebrate one of America’s most celebrated holidays but an event that brings thousands of people into the City of Milwaukee every year from all over the United States.
Last year, the Shamrock Shuffle saw over 10,000 attendees sign up for the event, which raised $10,000 for the Hunger Task Force and Special Olympics. The Shamrock Shuffle also creates hundreds of jobs for bars, restaurant, security, and MPD employees on a usually quiet Saturday. The event celebrated a safe 2018 event by providing its patrons with Water and Food discounts. The organizers even hired Jani-King Cleaning Services to clean the streets of Water Street, Brady, Third Street, Cathedral Square, and Walker's Point following the event. The organizers, SWARMM Events also host a 4k run called the Jig Jog, which takes place along Milwaukee’s Lakefront the morning of the Shuffle.
