St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday this year so don some green and get out to these local venues and activities to have some fun and properly celebrate.

Fork of the South
Get yourself a “Leprechaun.” This mint chip shake with lucky charm marshmallows and rainbow sprinkles on top is sure to put you in a festive mood. The store also has several St. Paddy’s day-themed accessories and home items.

McCreary’s Irish Pub and Eatery
Order some Guinness or a green lager and enjoy live music by Johnny Jameson and the Empty Pints who will play every night during St. Patrick’s Day week starting at 7 p.m. First come, first served.

Speaker Series
Learn a little history and possibly something new. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is hosting Dr. Jim Johnson who will discuss “Nativism, Persecution and Desertion: The St. Patrick’s Day Battalion in the Mexican-American War of 1846,” on March 17, at 4 p.m.

Sugar Drop Cafe and Dessert Boutique
Be creative! Sugar Drop is offering several St. Patrick’s Day-themed classes from a “Blue Skies and Rainbow Buttercream Cake” class, to a “DIY Cake Experience” with every decorative option you can imagine.

Downtown Shopping
Nothing green to wear? Not to worry, most downtown Franklin boutiques have you covered with a variety of options from green shoes to blazers. You will be trendy all season long and not just on the holiday.

Run for Community 

Bring your Irish spirit and walk/run for a cause. Nashville's St. Paddy’s Half Marathon and 5k will occur on March 11, starting at 8:30 a.m. (kids dash begins at 8:15 a.m.) for the Special Olympics. Pint glass for all who finish! Register online.

St. Patrick’s Day Party
Celebrate at one of the 30 eateries and bars with some green beer and whiskey and listen to live music on one of the three stages at the Assembly Food Hall on March 17 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Clover Crawl
Traditionalist? Be part of the 12th annual pub crawl being held on St. Patrick’s Day from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in downtown Nashville. Guests will be guided to five different bars. Must be 21+. Tickets required.
