The Best St. Patrick’s Day in Boston 2024 Guide

With a history of long-standing Irish roots, Boston is one of those destinations that goes all out for St. Patrick’s Day. Brimming with an endless spread of authentic pubs, live music, and food across the city, there is no shortage of fun and festivities on St. Patrick’s Day in Boston, March 17th. Whether you prefer a chill stroll through the Irish Heritage Trail or a more raucous celebration with the Dropkick Murphy’s, we’re breaking down some of the best St. Paddy’s Day events in Boston this year. 

Southie’s Annual Parade

Each year, huge crowds of green-clad revelers head to South Boston to watch the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This much-loved parade features an eclectic mix of bagpipes, brass marching bands, elaborate floats, dancers, and much more. If you want a spot directly on the traditional 3.5-mile route, you’ll have to plan ahead as things get pretty hectic, pretty quickly. If you prefer to be a little outside of the fray, you can enjoy the sights and sounds from the hills of Medal of Honor Park or watch in the comfort of your home with a can of WYNK on NECN.

Southie Social Presented By The Greg Hill Foundation

Sip in style as South Boston’s vibrant parade passes by at Southie Social, presented by The Greg Hill Foundation at Loco Taqueria and Oyster Bar. This exclusive party features a live band, DJ, free WYNK tasting, and plenty of shamrock-themed shenanigans. Plus, the purchase of your ticket and merch will help support local families affected by tragedy, making it a win for everyone involved. 

Dropkick Murphys Performance 

Boston’s hometown Celtic punk rock group, the Dropkick Murphys, will hold an impressive five concerts throughout Beantown the week of Saint Patrick’s Day. The first of which will be at Citizens House of Blues Boston on March 14, and the remainder will be held at MGM Music Hall on March 15-17. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to land tickets to one of two shows on St. Paddy’s Day itself. If moshpits and crowds aren’t your thing, you can also watch the livestream of their Live From Boston concert at 9 PM on March 17.

Irish Heritage Trail 

For a deeper understanding of Boston’s Irish-American history, check out the Irish Heritage Trail—a three-mile walk highlighting the contributions of local historical figures with Irish ancestry. Featuring 20 different historically significant sites, you will have the opportunity to learn more about places like Fenway Park, the Boston Public Library, and the Rose Kennedy Garden. Plus, there will be plenty of opportunities to stop for a pint or a bite to eat along the way. 

Go to An Irish Pub

Whether you’re there for the music, the brews, or the food, Boston is filled with true Irish pubs that will be celebrating all weekend long. As with many traditional pubs, these bars will be filled with the joy of live music, providing ample entertainment besides just drinking. So grab yourself a seat and dig into some shepherd’s pie or corned beef and cabbage.
