Shamrockin’ South Florida: Where to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Style

From Green Beer to Irish Jigs

3 girls celebrating St. Patrick's Day

On any given day, you can usually find me blogging, listing and selling real estate, and hanging out with my family, however, every March, I get my “green on” for one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day! I switch off my Realtor hat and pop on my shamrock headband to embrace the festive spirit.

I’m here to share the best places in South Florida where you can be Irish for the day, from lively pubs to family-friendly events.

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with great enthusiasm and excitement throughout the United States, and South Florida and Boca Raton is no exception. We love getting dressed up and heading out to the different festivities and pubs around South Florida.

The day is dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, and is celebrated on the 17th of March every year. In South Florida, the day is celebrated with parades, cultural events, and celebrations that showcase the rich Irish heritage and culture.

Parades and Bagpipers 

A popular St. Patrick’s Day parade in South Florida is the Fort Lauderdale St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival. The parade takes place in downtown Fort Lauderdale and is a family-friendly event.

The parade features marching bands, bagpipers, dancers, and plenty of floats that showcase the Irish culture. Another favorite is the Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival along Atlantic Ave! Enjoy these parades along with live music, food, and drinks!

For those looking for a more low-key celebration, there are plenty of pubs and restaurants in South Florida that offer St. Patrick’s Day specials and events. Many of these establishments offer traditional Irish dishes like corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, and Irish stew.

They also serve Irish drinks like Guinness, Irish whiskey, and Irish coffee. The atmosphere in these pubs and restaurants is lively and festive, and they are a great place to meet friends and celebrate!
