It’s almost that time of year to break out those green shirts, socks, hats and more to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! St. Charles has all you need to make the most of your St. Patrick’s celebrations with fun ideas for activities, delicious Irish food and more!
St. Charles St. Patrick’s Celebration
Continuing the tradition of celebrating the St. Patrick’s spirit, the St. Charles St. Patrick’s Celebration is bringing safe fun for everyone to enjoy! While there will not be a parade this year, come see groups of roaming bagpipers, snap a photo at the Lucky Photo Station on Riverside Ave., or take part in the Treasure Hunt to find leprechauns at various St. Charles businesses and enter to win a “Pot of Gold.” Information on the times of the events can be found on our website here!
See what St. Charles Businesses have to offer!
During the St. Patrick’s Celebration and on St. Patrick’s Day, some St. Charles businesses will be hosting specials, promotions and deals! For information on where to find businesses hosting deals, promotions and events during the St. Patrick’s celebration, visit here! Some the deals go beyond the Saturday of the St. Patrick’s Celebration. Alter Brewing + Kitchen is offering a special Irish Butter Burger & Irish Fries, head over to Smitty’s on the Corner for Luck of the Irish Shakes, Malts & Sundaes or Forever Yogurt for Free Lucky Charms marshmallow toppings with a purchase of $4 or more.
Of course, there’s no better place in St. Charles to go if you’re celebrating St. Pats than McNally’s Irish Pub. Try their signature Irish dishes and grab a pint of Guiness on tap (if you’re 21 and older of course).
Shop for green apparel
Of course on St. Patrick’s Day, you have to wear green! Find all your needed apparel at some of our shops such as Jeans and a Cute Top Shop, Stanbridge Master Saddlers, or head over to the Curious Fox Gift Shop for some green St. Charles themed shirts! These stores all have online ordering available if you want to order online then pick up during their store hours!
Craft your own brew
For those 21+ this St. Patrick’s Day, why not give it a go and try to make your own brews? Broken Brix Homebrew Shop has all you need if you’re interested in making you’re own brews! Or stop in and try some of their amazing brews for inspiration.
Shop at Blue Goose and make your own Irish themed dinner
Rather than going out on St. Pats, cook a five star meal with ingredients from Blue Goose Market! This local grocery store has everything you need with the freshest ingredients available. Put together ingredients for a traditional Irish lunch or dinner, Irish themed desserts and more!
No matter what you choose, come have fun in St. Charles this Patrick’s Day. Our businesses and town are already to help you have the best one yet!
