Boston St. Patrick's Day Overview

St-patricks-day_s165x110

Originally created as a Catholic Church feast day in the 1600s, St. Patrick’s Day has evolved into a secular celebration of Irish culture and one of the biggest worldwide parties on the calendar.

Boston is home to a large and proud Irish-American community, and arguably one of the most fun come St. Patrick’s Day. Every year, a healthy portion of Boston Irish – and hordes of other buzzed New England day-drinkers – head to the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the historic Southie neighborhood. There, Irish dancers dazzle while festive parade floats, and an eclectic assortment of American and Irish marching bands file through the streets. After the parade, crowds pile into neighborhood pubs like Stats Bar & Grille for a perfectly poured Guinness.

The St. Patrick’s Day bash isn’t limited to Southie, however. Green-clad Bostonians all across the city join various St. Patrick’s Day bar crawls that lead them to authentic, feel-good Irish destinations like Ned Devine’s, Tommy Doyle’s, and The Black Rose, where they sing along to well-known Emerald Isle tunes played live by bands from the motherland.

Whether they’re in St. Paddy’s Day decorated college campuses in Cambridge or up-and-coming hoods like Waterfront/Fort Point, Boston St. Patrick’s Day events make locals and visitors alike feel as though they’ve found a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.   

And, after a couple hours – and a couple more pints – Bostonians might think they’re actually in Ireland as they skip from one boisterous Beantown pub to another.
