St. Patrick's Day in Downtown Cincinnati

You can celebrate St. Patrick's Day over two days this year in the heart of Downtown Cincinnati with music, food, drinks, and the annual parade.

Starting a day early on Friday, March 13th you can enjoy live Irish music starting at 5pm, and Guinness drinks all night on Fountain Square. The activities will start at 10am on Saturday with the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade that runs through the streets (view parade route) of Downtown Cincinnati.

The parade will end around 1pm and will be immediately followed by day-long schedule of live music on Fountain Square. At 1pm the Unlucky Charms will take the stage, followed by the Pub Uglies at 2:30pm, The Seedy Seeds (my favorite - listen to them here) at 4pm, Joshua's Tree at 5:30pm, and ending with The Serfs (irish punk) at 7:30pm.

Food and beer will be available on the Square courtesy of McCormick & Schmick's. There will also be Irish merchandise for sale courtesy of Celtic Corner. The event is free and open to the public. Food and beverages are available for purchase.

If you would like to help with the event, or other events on Fountain Square, be sure to go sign up to be included on the volunteer opportunities email list. For more information check out the Fountain Square Volunteer Page.

It is fun. I haven't been down in awhile but the parade was always kinda nuts.

I believe your link to the parade route is outdated.

Here is the link to the official site, which describes the route as traveling along 5th Street from Sentinel to Plum, then down to 3rd for a short hop to Central.

^Thanks for the heads up. There will be a new parade route this year. I have made the appropriate corrections to the map and hyperlink within the post.
