Best St. Patrick’s Day Events in NYC

Beaming with culture, New York City is definitely a place to come to celebrate holidays. And, St. Patrick’s Day is definitely one of this city’s most lively holidays that draws participants from all over the world! Sunday, March 17th is rapidly approaching, and there are so many different ways that you can participate in this festive holiday.  As long as you have your green outfit ready, four leaf clover accessories, and an excited spirit, you are sure to have one lucky day! Whether you live uptown or downtown, there are St. Patty’s Day events happening close to you.


The St Patrick’s Day Parade

Did you know that New York City has the oldest St. Patrick’s Day Parade? New Yorkers have been marching since 1762, which explains a little about how massive this parade is today!  The parade begins on Sat March 16th at 11am and concludes around 5pm. If you would like to catch a live viewing of this parade, it takes place along 5th Avenue from 44th Street up to 79th Street. It is very fun and celebratory, but if your little ones don’t like loud, crowded places they may want to stay at home. They can always catch the full parade on tv! Glenwood residents midtown and uptown are close to the parade if they walk over to 5th Avenue.



Family Friendly Activities

If you would like to participate in family friendly fun, you should check out Sober St. Patrick’s Day! It is located at The St. Patrick’s Youth Center at 268 Mulberry Street from 4-7pm. There will be great live musical performances and dancing that all ages will enjoy. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children under the age of 10. Snacks and soft beverages will be included.  This is closest for Glenwood residents in downtown buildings, but can be enjoyed by all Glenwood residents.
