Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in Central Ohio

2015 Saint Patrick’s Day Events


Many restaurants and bars are encouraging you to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with them, hosting St. Paddy’s Day parties with live entertainment. Starting with morning Pancake Breakfasts, and going through those late evening Irish Pub dinners. Looking for green beer, lively and live entertainment, dancing, and other Irish festivities? Check websites to see what your favorite restaurant or watering hole are offering on this greenest of holidays. If you’re choosing to celebrate Saint Patrick’s day without the green beer, we have a few suggestions!

March 14, 7:30am-All Day

Dublin, Ohio is the best place to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day in Central Ohio. Bring the entire family to Downtown Dublin to enjoy this huge St. Patrick’s Day bash. Beginning with a pancake breakfast and ending with the famous miles-long community parade filled with bands, leprechauns, floats, and everything Irish. If you still have energy to burn after all this, try the Blarney Bash with live music, and drinks and food for sale. For more information go to Dublin’s tourism site or the City of Dublin events page.
