Seattle is known as "the emerald city", so its only natural that one day a year we all get a little crazy about the emerald aisle and celebrate Irish America on Saint Patrick's day all over our awesome city. If you haven't made plans yet, check out these suggestions from our blog team!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival in Seattle Center
Starting at 4th Ave and James St. and making its way to Seattle Center, you can follow along with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and watch Irish bands, pipers, and dancers. Plus, end the walk with fun food, music, and activities at the Irish Festival taking place at Seattle Center’s Armory.
Shawn O'Donnell's American Grill and Irish Pub
What’s St.Patrick’s Day if you’re not spending it at an Irish pub? O’Donnell’s has an entire week packed full of events to get you excited for Saturday. First, they start with Irish themed trivia on Tuesday, continuing with live Irish music sessions the rest of the week, finally ending with happy hour on Friday ($5 Guiness!) and a day full of events and food trucks on Saturday.
Fado Irish Pub & Restaurant
Come for brunch and stay through to the evening with festivities including live music, rugby viewing, and March Madness. If you’re looking for a one stop shop where you can have a blast but stay put, Fado’s is the place to do it. $10 at the door starting at 7:00am.
Of course, in true Seattle fashion there will still be loads of events, artists, and bars to visit that will also be brimming with activities - St. Patrick’s themed and not. But with a week full of events, it’s easy to make time to try them all!
