St Patrick’s Day Events Around Town

Every year, bars and taverns all over the world get into full-fledged party-mode to celebrate the life of Saint Patrick who passed away on March 17th of the year 461.   The holiday is widely celebrated in Great Britain, United States, Canada, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.  To celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, followers hold parades and festivals, play Gaelic folk music and dancing, wear lots of green and use the shamrock symbol in all decorations.

This year, 2024, St Patrick’s Day falls on a Sunday.  Authentic Irish Pubs and their loyal patrons will celebrate from early morning with breakfast and beer until late night followed by more breakfast in the wee hours.  However, you don’t have to wait until the 17th of March to get your “green on”.  The City of Fort Lauderdale will celebrate on Saturday, March 16th beginning with a 4-Mile “Shamrock Run” at 7:15am and a kids leprechaun bash followed by a parade and concert starting at Noon.  On the same day, the City of Delray Beach will present their annual St Patrick’s Day Parade from Noon – 2pm followed by a festival with live music, food trucks, food booths, vendors, outdoor games, including Pipes and Drums performing on the Great Lawn at Old School Square.

The next day, the City of Hollywood will get their celebrations started with a parade which will make its’ way along Harrison Street in downtown Hollywood to Arts Park at 1pm. In addition to the city sponsored parades and festivals, many area bars are planning their own post-parade celebrations. We’ve done our best to include any places with live music but there are many more parties around town as “everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day!”.
