St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that is just fun—it’s all about good food and good celebrations. And if anyone knows how to celebrate, it’s the Irish! As we approach St. Patrick’s Day, here are some of the events that we think really stand out in Colorado Springs.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade – This parade has been voted the best downtown Colorado Springs event, and it’s not one to miss! The parade has floats, food and drink booths, and lots and lots of green! You can also participate in a 5k run or cycling before the parade. As always, don’t forget to wear a kilt or green attire.

17th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Gala- The gala is a wonderful evening full of great food, entertainment, and exciting live and silent auctions to support Catholic Charities mission to help local citizens who are in need. There will also be dancing after the gala from 9-11pm.

St. Patty’s Day Murder Mystery Dinner – This one sounds like a really unique way to celebrate the holiday: an amazing Murder Mystery Dinner hosted at the Historic Briarhurst Manor. There will be hours of food, including a five-course meal, dessert, and coffee. Call ahead for reservations!
