Dia dhuit! (That’s Irish for hello!) With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, the Twin Cities are gearing up for a celebration like no other.

And what better way to experience them than with a touch of luxury? Let us be your guide to having a St. Patrick’s Day Twin Cities Celebration in style.

Irish Arts Minnesota Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration at Landmark Center

Start your day off right with a visit to the Irish Arts Minnesota Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration at the historic Landmark Center in Saint Paul. From 9am to 5pm, immerse yourself in Irish culture with live entertainment, traditional dancing, pipe bands, Celtic vendors, delicious Irish fare, and plenty of activities for the little ones. It’s a family-friendly affair that’s sure to delight all ages.

Tour Brother Justus Whiskey Co.

For something a little more refined, why not indulge in a dram of whiskey at the Brother Justus Whiskey Co.? From 11am to 4pm, take a tour of their distillery and witness the christening of their newest still. And be sure to try their special Shamrock Shimmy beverage – it’s a true taste of the Emerald Isle.

Saint Patrick’s Day Parade

No St. Paddy’s Day would be complete without a parade, and the Twin Cities’ Saint Patrick’s Day parade is one not to be missed. Starting at noon, the parade winds its way from Rice Park to Mears Park along 5th St. in Saint Paul. Grab a prime spot along the route and soak in the festive atmosphere as colorful floats, marching bands, and dancing troupes pass by.

Live Music Performances

As the day turns into night, keep the celebrations going with live music performances around town. Head to The Hook and Ladder Theater for a high-energy show by Flatfoot 56 & Koffin Kats, or groove to the sounds of Teague & the Paddy Wagon at Aster Cafe. Over in Saint Paul, you’ll find the Wild Colonial Boys at Landmark Center, and The Dregs at MetroNOME Brewery. It’s the perfect way to cap off a day of Irish festivities.

Irish Dining Destinations

Of course, no St. Patrick’s Day would be complete without indulging in some traditional Irish cuisine. Treat yourself to a meal at one of the Twin Cities’ finest Irish establishments, including The Local, Kieran’s Irish Pub, The Prodigal Public House, O’Shaughnessy Distilling, and Dubliner Pub. Hyacinth will be featuring a full four-course traditional Irish meal for dinner on Sunday.
