St. Pat’s in Five Points is one of Columbia’s signature events. The festival creates a $6 million economic impact on the City of Columbia each year. The Five Points Association is able to function productively and actively through the year due to the net proceeds of the event. Funds are used for beautification projects, security cameras, marketing and promotions and organizing and hosting free events for the community.
