St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until next week but most locals will be celebrating this Saturday at the various venues hosting St. Paddy’s parties. I have compiled a list of the many events going on in Dallas this weekend to celebrate this holiday full of Irish culture along with some green outfit inspiration to keep you from getting pinched! Where are you planning on celebrating? Leave a comment and let me know!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Greenville: this is a St. Patrick’s Day tradition for many Dallas natives and definitely the place to check out if you’ve never experienced it before. You’ll want to get there early if you want a good place to sit and park but you are guaranteed some good (most likely drunk) people watching all day long. The parade is Saturday, March 14th at 11:00am and stretches 2 miles from Blackwell St. and Greenville Ave. to SMU Blvd. and 75. Josh Abbott Band performs after the parade at Energy Square (corner of Greenville and University)
Dash Down Greenville 5k: This is the 20th anniversary of the St. Paddy’s Day dash down Greenville and it is expected to be packed! The 5k takes place at 8am before the parade and the proceeds help support the North Texas Food Bank.
Henderson Tap House: ALL DAY party! They open at 7am and have live music and DJ’s. $4 Green Beer, $4 2 Ginger Shots, $8 Big Ginger Cocktails, and $8 Irish Car Bombs. *I was here last year for St. Patrick’s Day and had a GREAT time! They also have an Irish Breakfast special for $15 (7am-11am) and you can reserve a table for $20 per person that includes a pitcher of green beer, Rueben Sliders, and Irish Nachos
