St Patricks Guide

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) threat, many of the following events and activities may be canceled or postponed. Please contact the individual organizations or venues to confirm whether or not these events are still occurring. 

Corned beef and cabbage, dodging pinches by wearing green, and looking for leprechauns. That is how I celebrate one of the most fun holidays of the year, St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe you like green beer and shaking your shamrocks, or maybe listening to bag pipes and connecting to your Irish roots is more your style. Whatever it is that you do to celebrate this holiday, we have a bunch of activities all centered around St. Patrick’s Day here in the ABQ Moms Guide to St. Patrick’s Day.

Just don’t forget to wear green.
