Top St. Patrick's Day Parades and Events for Philly Families

Being home to one of the longest continuously held St. Patrick's Day parades, Philadelphia certainly knows how to celebrate the luck of the Irish during the month of March. However, it's not all about pub crawls and green beer. Throughout the Delaware Valley, there are opportunities to learn about Irish history, see Irish step dancing, listen to Celtic music and Irish stories, search for hidden leprechauns, and, of course, watch a traditional St. Patrick's Day parade! We have rounded up a list of exciting activities worth a pot of gold. So, get the family ready and have some fun this St. Patrick's Day. Sláinte!

For more fun, be sure to view our top picks for March as well as free events to keep the family busy all month long.
