Celebrating St. Patrick's Day in NYC

Feeling the luck of the Irish? St. Patrick’s Day in New York City is an experience you won’t want to miss out on. Locals, visitors, and even NYC staples like bagels and beer will don their favorite green attire and flock to the heart of the city to join in on the holiday’s festivities. Rise early the day of to grab a front-row view of the iconic St. Patrick’s Day parade. Dating back to 1762, the parade is considered to be one of the oldest and celebrates with bagpipers, marching bands, and floats marching up Fifth Avenue to 79th Street. Rather break away and explore? You can still tip your cap to the Irish with a Big Onion holiday tour of Irish immigrant landmarks and history around the city. Or pay homage with a drink at classic Irish pubs like The Dead Rabbit, McSorley’s Old Ale House, or Paddy Reilly’s.
