This year, St. Patty’s Day fall on a Friday, March 17th. Per usual, the celebrations will be out of control. The Chicago River will be dyed green and lined with dunk sporting their Chi-Rish shamrock shirts, green beads and party hats.

The parades always fall the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day so here are the details for this weekend (March 11th!)


Downtown Chicago parade starts at noon at Balbo and Columbus.

The South Side Irish Parade is this Sunday at noon at 103rd and Western.

The Northwest Side Parade kicks off at noon at Onahan School (6634 W. Raven St.) Stay for an after-party from 1:00-5:00

You like how there on separate days so we get in an entire weekend of debauchery?!

Don’t want to be caught up in the parade madness? There is much more to do throughout the next week.


The B96 Bowling Ball Brunch is Saturday at 10 Pin Bowling, River North.

The Irish American Heritage Center holds the biggest family entertainment event Saturday 12-12. The event continues next Friday, March 17th.
