St. Patrick’s Day is approaching, a day when those who are Irish celebrate the patron saint of Ireland and those who aren’t technically Irish express their appreciation for all things Irish. Green is worn, green beer is had (for those 21+, of course) and sometimes you get pinched (though maybe not this year). If you're looking for a place to celebrate, you're in luck! Houston has something Irish themed to suit every taste.

Houston St. Patrick's Parade and Celebration

POST Houston - Saint Patrick's Day Celebration

Join an H-Town crowd for a day filled with festivities, starting with the St. Patrick's Day parade, kicking off and concluding at POST with an exciting Award Ceremony. Delight in games, delicious food, vibrant Irish performances, an outdoor market, live music, and much more. This event is free and welcomes people of all ages. Houston's St. Patrick's Day Parade has deep roots in the city's history, dating back to the 1880s when it originated in "Irish Town" near the old St. Patrick's Church. Flags, bands, and enthusiastic marchers would journey to Market Square for a day brimming with entertainment, including music, games, and culinary delights. The festivities would spill into the numerous pubs in Market Square, creating an atmosphere of joy and camaraderie. In 1960, renowned radio personalities Tim Nolan and Bob Bryant initiated the tradition of the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Houston.
