St. Paddy’s Day in Boston!

St. Paddy’s day is arguably one of the most celebrated days in Boston, and now that you’ve had some time to catch up on your studies over spring break, you deserve to join in on the festivities!

Southie Parade

The South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a Boston tradition, but it does tend to get a little crazy, so stay focused on the Character & Fitness requirements — we don’t want to see any of you on the news  (March 16)

Walk & Learn

Go beyond the green beer and leprechaun costumes and take a stroll down Boston’s Irish Heritage Trail (guided tours on March 15-17)

Festivals & Celebrations

Sing, dance, play and eat at the Canadian American Club of Massachusetts St. Patrick’s Day Weekend of Events  in Watertown (March 14-16) or take a short trip to Canton for the Irish Cultural Centre’s Celebration (March 14-17)

If corned beef and ceildhs aren’t your thing, check out the Boston Irish Film Festival at the Somerville Theater (March 20-23)

Song & Dance

There’s nothing like classic Irish culture to get you in the spirit of the holiday, so head to the Reagle Music Theater in Waltham for their compilation performance A Little Bit of Ireland, or see WGBH’s St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn (both March 15-16)

If you’re looking for something a little less traditional, check out the Dropkick Murphys at the House of Blues (March 13-16) or spend St. Patrick’s Day with Katie McD at the Beehive in the South End (March 17)
