My name may be Erin, and I may be Irish, but I’m not 100% certain…but that doesn’t stop me from celebrating a little bit every March 🙂 No matter your name or cultural heritage, check out these fun activities some are in-person and some are virtual.
We have included lots of ways to fill your day with a little luck of the Irish for St. Patrick’s Day and make you shout, “Erin go Bragh”! Some are just for fun and some are educational. Find a little bit of everything for everyone. The Town of Erin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is ON for 2021!
PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED, POSTPONED OR MODIFIED DUE TO CONCERNS OF THE CORONAVIRUS.
