Join thousands in downtown Saint Paul on March 16 for the 47th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade at noon. The parade stands as one of the longest running and most decorated St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the nation. Green attire and wacky costumes are the norm. In 1851, Saint Paul held the state’s first ever St. Patrick’s Day parade to celebrate Irish heritage. What started as an impromptu event changed shape in 1967 when Saint Paul’s Irish community gathered at a local bar to create the St. Patrick’s Association to organize and grow this tradition. Each year the downtown area is packed with people from all over to celebrate the day. [Event Website]
The St. Patrick’s Day Block Party will take place on the two blocks of West 7th Street adjacent to the Xcel Energy Center in Downtown Saint Paul from 2-10p.m. The two blocks have seven bars and restaurants including Irish bars Patrick McGovern’s and The Liffey. Here is your one stop shop for all that's happening for the party. Specials, bands and more! [Event Details]
