Celebrate Irish culture & tradition throughout Chicago this March. From a green river to lively parades, there nothing quite like St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago.
Saturday, March 17 at 1:00 PM
Location: Columbus Drive (between Balbo Dr. & Monroe Dr.)
What’s a holiday without a parade? How about one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the country? Join in the Chicago tradition that celebrates its 63rd anniversary this year. Rain or shine, it begins on Columbus Drive and moves north through Grant Park for roughly three hours, beginning at Balbo Drive and ending at Monroe Drive. Don your best green outfit—or a kilt if you dare—and embrace all Chicago has to offer for those Irish at heart.
The Chicago Flower & Garden Show at Navy Pier has been a city favorite since its inception in 1847.
From March 14 to 18, more than 40,000 attendees will step into spring with life-sized gardens, DIY workshops, garden-to-table cooking presentations, a bustling marketplace and more. In this year’s exhibition, “Every Garden Has a Story to Tell,” the Flower & Garden show details Chicago’s sensitive side by interpreting the way flowers and gardens play pivotal roles in our lives and literature.
