I always love to see all the different events that are happening around St. Patrick’s Day. It seems that all events this year are happening on March 16th instead – due to the fact St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Sunday. I guess people don’t want to go into work on a Monday morning hungover from the weekend events that took place, and that is totally okay! 😉
This year on March 16th, there will be an Irish Festival that takes place from noon until 10:00 pm in Upland California. This event is FREE and DOES NOT require any sort of ticket purchase. However, you do have to be 21 years old or older to drink, but kids are welcome to come. This event takes place in Downtown Upland. There will be microbreweries, tons of food, kid zone areas, streets filled with vendors to shop, along with the established businesses in the area that you can also dine and shop at, too.
Address: 2nd Ave and 9th St Upland CA 91784
If you are not in the mood for a festival but would rather be cruising on a yacht, then this event is for you. Make sure you wear plenty of green and you will be welcomed aboard with a festive Irish-themed shot. On the same day, March 16th, in the City of San Diego there will be a St. Patrick’s Party Cruise. This event is from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. This boat ride will be about 2.5 hours long on a 90-foot yacht. There will be signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres to munch on. And of course, there will be live music aboard the yacht to get the party going. Dust off your dance moves and wear the right shoes and you can dance your way up to the second deck and see amazing views of the city and they bay. Directions and Address is given when ticket is purchased. *It is located in San Diego*
