We take our St. Patrick’s Day events pretty seriously around here. St. Patty’s Day parties can be found throughout the entire city of Atlanta, but there are a few in particular which you might want to wander your way over to this year. One of the reasons why I love the coming of St. Patrick’s Day events is because it typically kicks off the Atlanta spring events schedule. That means more festivals, outdoor music, races, and etc…. Basically, it means a lot of beer, food, art, and the occasional pre-indulgence exercise.
Here are a few of the most popular St. Patrick’s Day events in Atlanta, Georgia this March:
- Luckyfest 2012 – March 10th at Park Tavern (Piedmont Park)
- Green Solo Cup Party – March 16th at Wild Bills – Starts at 8:30pm
- Cloverfest 2012 – March 17th at the Masquerade Music Park – Starts at 1pm
- Lepre*CON 2012 – March 17th at Park Tavern – Starts at 2pm
- St. Patrick’s Day Party at Fado – March 17th at Fado’s – Starts at 7am, ends at 3am.
- Atlanta St. Patrick’s Day Parade – March 17th – Family Friendly Option – Starts at noon
- Feeling Lucky Festival – March 17th – Tavern 99 (E. Andrews) – 2pm to 2am
If you feel like making the trip to Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day, you should definitely do it. There are thousands of people all over the streets and packed into bars, but the no container law makes it easy for you to escape with your green beer when you need a bit of fresh air. However, if you haven’t made plans to head to Georgia’s historic port city, then you better have friends who live in the area. Hotels are typically booked by now.
