WIth this year’s St. Patty’s celebration falling on Monday, March 17, most of best holiday happenings are occuring the weekend prior. Take a peek at this fun happenings:
Seattle Children’s Museum is celebrating both Saturday and Sunday, March 15 and 16, with Irish jigs, reels, Irish stories, and arts and crafts. Great for kids 2-10 years of age.
Also at the Seattle Center on March 15 and16 is the Irish Week Festival. Here you can trace your Irish roots, buy Irish and Gaelic related arts and crafts and other items, view Irish films and more. Noon-6pm both days.
Kell’s Irish Festival: Billed as the largest Irish Festival in the city, they will be partying all THREE days (Saturday, Sunday and the actual holiday) with live music, and more. From their location at Pike Place Market, they take over the nearby Mexican place, as well as a tent, and celebrate with true Irish pride. Highly recommend!
