101 Things To Do In Memphis #56: St. Patrick’s Day 2017 Guide

by Melissa Thompson

St. Patrick’s Day is Friday, March 17, 2017. Here are a handful of ways to enjoy the festivities.

– Silky O’Sullivan St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Beale Street, March 11, 3 p.m., free, all ages/kid-friendly
When your bar claims to make every day like St. Patrick’s Day, you’d better go buck wild for the real thing. In this case, Silky O’Sullivan’s delivers. A few years ago I caught a cabbage. It’s festive and people are drinking, but overall it’s family friendly.

– Celtic Crossing’s St. Patrick’s Festival, March 17-19, prices vary, 21+
Celtic is going all out for a three-day, green-tinted throwdown in midtown. Details forthcoming but judging by years past, I would expect a big tent, beer and booze specials, live Irish music, lots of Irish food, and cover charge.

– Cooper Young St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Cooper St., March 17, 10:30 a.m., free, all ages/kid-friendly
Celtic Crossing and the Memphis Irish Society will co-host the 2nd annual Cooper Young St. Paddy’s Day Parade. Starting at 10 a.m., they’re shutting down Cooper from York to First Congo. Expect “floats” from the Grizzlies’ Claw Crew, Wolf River Pipes and Drums, bands, mounted police, and more.

–  St. Patrick’s Day Party, Flying Saucer Downtown, March 17, 11 a.m. – 2 a.m., free to enter, 21+
Enjoy St. Paddy’s Day at the downtown Flying Saucer with $3.50 beer specials, Irish food menu, 5 p.m. “blessing of the kegs”, and live music like the Gallowglass bagpipers and Snozzberry.

 St. Patrick’s Day at Huey’s
Huey’s usually has plenty of drink specials at all/most of their locations for this esteemed holiday. Last year it was a dollar off all Bud Light pints, Guinness, Killian’s, Jameson shots, and Irish Car Bombs.

– Silky O’Sullivan’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, Beale Street, March 17, 5 p.m., prices vary, 21+
Start off the party with the Raising of the Goat and Blessing of the Kegs in Handy Park at 5 p.m., followed by a pub crawl on Beale Street and general debauchery at Silky’s all night. Silky’s actually has several St. patrick’s events throughout the month. Check out hte list here.

– Tweed Ride on St. Patty’s Day, Peddler Bike Shop, March 17, 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m., free to attend, all ages
Don your tweed and go on a bike ride from the Peddler Bike Shop (Walker) downtown to High Cotton Taproom for beer and food, then back. Lights and helmets required.

– The MD’s St. Patrick’s Show, Local on the Square, March 17, 10 p.m. – midnight, no cover that I know of, 18+
The MD’s perform their first show at Local on St. Patrick’s Day.

– Suds & Stories, Elmwood Cemetery, March 18, 1 p.m., $15 per person, all ages/kid-friendly
Get a history lesson on the Scots-Irish who rest at Elmwood Cemetery, plus beer and snacks. You must register in advance: call (901) 774-3212.
