Go to a St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The St. Patrick’s Day parades put on by towns and cities are free to attend.

Host a Pot Luck

If you’d like to host a St. Patrick’s Day party but don’t have the budget to put together a big soiree on your own, host a pot luck instead. You can provide the venue and decorations, and guests can bring their favorite Irish dish, drink, or dessert. You can get all of your family and friends together for a great party and hearty meal for the cost of a few decorations. Hosting a St. Patrick’s Day pot luck is nearly free.

Go to a St. Patrick’s Day Happy Hour

On St. Patrick’s Day, many Irish bars and pubs celebrate the holiday by lowering their prices and showcasing drink specials. If you’re looking to celebrate on March 17th with some green beer, check out the locations with deals around you. If you go with all of your friends, you can probably even score a bigger discount on a pitcher.

Watch the River Dyeing

Whether you’re in Chicago or not, you can watch the famous dyeing of the Chicago River. For those in Chicago, it’s free to attend and watch, but get there early as riverside viewing fills up quickly. For those around the country, watching the dyeing of the Chicago River on TV means you’ll get to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day from the comfort of your own home.
