7 St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the Denver to sport your green

If you missed last week’s Denver St. Patrick’s Parade, don’t worry, you’re in luck, because St. Patrick’s Day isn’t even until Friday, March 17, so the party must go on.

Whether you’re craving some corned beef hash, a pitcher of green beer or the beautiful screech of bagpipes, there are plenty of celebrations around town to get your jig on.

Here are seven pubs, restaurants, or marketplaces throughout Denver metro to sport your green:

Clancy’s Irish Pub

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all weekend long at Colorado’s oldest and longest-running Irish Pub, Clancy’s in Wheat Ridge. From Friday, March 17 to 19, Clancy’s will be hosting more than a dozen bands, like Bleed N Green, on two stages, one inside and another outdoors with a large heated tent. See the full lineup here. A $3 entry fee is required.
