Don’t let Covid-19 stop us from one of the coolest Phoenix traditions, the Phoenix St. Patrick’s Day Parade! While we’re going a hundred percent virtual this year, we are no short of amazing programming and fantastic vendors. So, are you ready for us to give you a full tour of the virtual Phoenix St. Patrick’s Day fair?
Did you know the full Faire is over 9 hours long? That’s why it’s best to make it a family date and get comfy on your couch before starting the video! But the virtual experience is as impressive as the in-person participation. Actually, for those of you who aren’t the biggest fan of crowds and hot weather, this virtual parade might be exactly what you needed to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day to the fullest!
Besides the list of top Irish Bars in Phoenix we put together earlier in March, the virtual St. Patrick’s Day Faire has an awesome artist and vendor lineup this year! Whether you are looking for unique Irish goods to collect, or indulge in some takeout Irish food, you are sure to find a perfect fit from the vendor list!
Irish culture has a long history in the Phoenix Valley area. Among the multiple neighborhoods and organizations, the Irish Cultural Center & McClelland Library is probably the best-known. Throughout the year, the Center often features various cultural exhibitions, family activities, and discussions. Additionally, the Center also has an extensive collection of Irish literature and other publications for book lovers!
