Where to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Dallas

Picture of Quia Querisma
Updated: 18 March 2018
Whether you’re an authentic Celt or just Irish for a day, Dallas celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in a major way, with the biggest parade in the Southwest. Sure you can stop by a neighborhood pub and hope they’ll have some green beer, but the Greenville Avenue parade is just “what you do in Dallas” on St. Pat’s.

The event has had a love/hate relationship with city officials in decades past, but revelers refused to have their traditions quashed. After partnering with the Greenville Avenue Area Business Association, the event was officially renamed the Dallas St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival and supports a scholarship program for Dallas Independent School District students. The event is Saturday, March 17th, 2018, kicking off at 11:00am on Greenville Ave. at Blackwell St. The two-mile route ends at SMU Blvd. at Central Expressway. More than 120,000 revelers are usually expected, and there are floats, celebrity sightings, and music galore.

If you prefer to stay away from the parade route, or are looking for some after party action the next time St. Paddy’s Day rolls around, here are a few great options.

This Lower Greenville mainstay ditched the brunch menu in preparation for the St. Paddy’s Day melee. The regular menu was in service, along with drink specials on green beer, Bailey’s, Paddy’s Irish Whisky, boilermakers, and Irish car bombs. Trying to reserve a table on St. Paddy’s Day is just wishful thinking, so if you want a seat (inside or on the patio), the advice is to get there early.
