Washington, DC St. Patrick's Day Overview

Back in the 1600s, the Catholic Church created St. Patrick’s Day in order to commemorate Christianity’s arrival in Ireland. Over the years, St. Paddy’s Day has evolved into arguably the most popular secular party on the worldwide calendar.

Washington, DC St. Patrick’s Day starts with the Annual Washington, DC St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which provides green-clad citizens a chance to get caught up in the sounds of the pipe and marching bands as they watch local fire and police departments, Irish dancers, and festive parade floats saunter by.

ShamrockFest – which features contests for Best Men and Women Legs in Kilts competitions and amazing live music by both Irish and non-Irish influence bands – is proof that there is a Washington, DC St. Patrick’s Day celebration for everyone. 

DC denizens who’d rather have a more intimate St. Paddy’s Day experience, however, skip over to authentic Irish Washington, DC pubs like Kelly’s Irish Times or The Dubliner, a family-owned joint that boasts tasty Gaelic grub, gallons of Guinness, and live Irish music of its own.

There are plenty of St. Patrick’s Day deals all over the city, so Washingtonians have no excuse for not finding a St. Paddy’s Day event that satisfies their inner Irishman or Irishwoman.
