The search is over! The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is DEFINITELY in Downtown. This Saint Patrick’s Day, raise a pint, wear your green and celebrate all things Irish!
The St. Paddy’s Day shenanigans begin with the return of the 61st Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade [March 12, 12pm]. After two long years, the leprechauns will roam, the streets will be adorned with festive floats and the family-friendly parade will finally be underway. Catch the perfect view of the parade from Market Square Park – sham-rock and roll to music, play games, drink green beer and then post-parade, join the Downtown Block Party at bars and restaurants in the Historic District to enjoy exciting drink specials and continued fun!
Get some good ole’ fashioned luck o’ the Irish at Shay McElroy’s Irish Pub. Wash down a delicious "REUben” sandwich made with sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese with a pint of Guinness or some Jameson as you fuel up for an evening of celebrations at the Irish-owned and operated pub.
THE PARTY AIN'T OVER UNTIL IT’S
Stretching three blocks from Minute Maid Park, grab tickets to the largest St. Patrick’s Day festival in Houston. Presented by 94.5 The Buzz, Bud Light and Lucky’s Pub, enjoy live music from Rod Ryan, leprechauns, bagpipers, DJ’s, delicious food trucks and of course tons of green beer to go around for the perfect all-day (and night) celebration on March 17 from 6am until Friday, March 18 at 2am.
PUT YOUR BEARD TO THE TEST
Just in case your memories may become a little cloudy 😉, keep a memory of St. Patrick’s Day 2022 with you forever by grabbing a commemorative mug at Saint Arnold’s Brewing Company. Put your beard to test during the Donegal Beard Growing Competition and enjoy delicious craft beer, food and live music.
PUT THE GREEN IN DISCOVERY GREEN
Discovery Green has ALL the green we need. For some “untraditional” St. Patrick’s Day fun, grab some skates, rock your green and enjoy Throwback Thursday at The Rink. From 7-9 pm, get a blast from the past with throwbacks from DJ Mohawk Steve.
Drop by Silver Lining Bar in Understory (800 Capitol) to snap a pic at the St. Patrick's Day Photo Booth and sip on green beer with free goodies from Crown Apple, Jameson and Bailey's.
Kick off your happy hour at Finn Hall (712 Main) with music by DJ Yung Chris from 12-3PM and some lucky drink specials at Swallow's Nest!
