St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations Across the US



Irish Bagpipes Will Echo in the Concrete Glens of New York City

Oh, Danny boy, ‘tis the time of year when Irish bagpipes will be calling in the concrete glens of New York City, across the swooning boughs of Savannah, Georgia, and in the halls of the White House as the U.S. celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades, pub crawls and a state visit.

World’s Largest and Oldest Parade in New York City

The annual parade in New York City — which bills itself as the world’s largest and oldest — will draw throngs to Fifth Avenue to listen to bagpipes and bands, and give homage to Ireland’s patron saint.

One of the Largest Parade in Savannah, Georgia

In Savannah, Georgia, paradegoers plant their lawn chairs in prime viewing areas to watch a flow of floats, dancers and marching bands. The city’s annual parade is one of the largest and draws visitors from near and far.

Cities Across the US Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Some cities including Chicago, which dyes its river green to commemorate a day when everyone pretends to be Irish, already held their parades last weekend. Other cities, including Boston, will hold parades and other festivities this weekend.

Revelers Raise Pints in Pubs and Bars

But their streets will nevertheless be awash in green Friday evening, as revelers raise pints in pubs and bars.

White House Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with Green

Also flowing green will be the fountain on the South Lawn of the White House as President Joe Biden, who often speaks of his Irish heritage, welcomes Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar for a longstanding meetup between the two heads of state that had been delayed two years by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As St. Patrick’s Day arrives, the US prepares to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland through a range of festive activities. From the largest parade in New York City to the green river in Chicago and the visit of Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to the White House, Americans across the country will enjoy a day of Irish pride and revelry.
