St. Patty’s Day Events

Don your kilt and follow the rainbow to downtown. Here’s your guide to St. Patrick’s Day in Austin:

The Annual St. Patrick’s Day Austin Celebration

Sat, March 17, 2018 | 1pm to 8pm | Pioneer Farms Drive

If you’re looking for a family-friendly, authentic display of Irish culture, then head to Pioneer Farms (near North Lamar). Hosted by the Celtic Cultural Center, the festival honors the patron saint of Ireland in a more traditional way. No leprechauns. No green beer. But here’s what you will find:

  • Live entertainment on two covered stages
  • International and local stars of Celtic music
  • Traditional Irish line dancers
  • Irish language workshops
  • Authentic Irish beer and Celtic grub
    (Corned beef and cabbage, Guinness, Harp, Smithwick’s Irish Ale etc.)
  • Entertainment for the wee laddies and lasses.

Fadó Irish Pub Annual St. Patrick’s Day Street Party

Sat, March 17, 2018 | TBA | 214 W 4th St.

If block parties with leprechauns and kegs of green beer is more your style, then head to Fourth Street in downtown Austin.

  • They serve a full Irish breakfast, but arrive early.
  • Watch European sports on the big screen.
  • Stay late for music on the outside stage.
