St. Patrick’s Day in Vancouver 2012 Events
Top o’ the morning to you! They’re after my lucky charms! Guess what, it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day in Vancouver! Time to start pretending we’re Irish for an excuse to drink green beer!
Here’s what’s going on in Vancouver this St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, 2012:
St. Patrick’s Pub Crawl: Want some variety in your drinking, with the bonus of knowing you’re contributing to a good cause? Ticket proceeds from the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl on the Drive benefit the 2011 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer and ticketed patrons get front-of-the-line access–and no cover charges!–to nine great venues all along Commercial Drive. There will also be complimentary tastings, drinks and appies specials at each respective venue, contests, prizes, and more.
The Blarney Stone: One of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Vancouver, the Blarney Stone celebrates the holiday with three days of Irish events, including March 17th’s St. Patrick’s Day party, when the pub opens at 9am for an all-ages brunch and kids menu. The 19+ party starts at 6pm with green beer, Irish Dancers, full Irish menu, and live music.
Lamplighter Public House: The Lamplighter goes all out for St. Patty’s Day 2011 with a live show from The Knackers, a four-piece Celtic/folk/rock ensemble that combines Irish and Canadian influences in their music.
The Irish Heather: One of Gastown’s favourite neighbourhood bars, the Irish Heather is a classic location for tossing back Guiness and Irish Whiskey on St. Patrick’s Day!
Ceili’s Irish Pub & Restaurant: Vancouver’s largest Irish pub and eatery, Ceili’s celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with live music, Irish dancers, bag pipers, and a huge crowd.
And don’t forget about the other March events happening around Vancouver if you’re not feeling the Irish spirit.
