We love a good old-fashioned St. Patrick’s Day parade as much as the next person, but there is much more to experience in Boston! Here’s our list of some unique festivities going on near The Abby!

Dropkick Murphys concert

MGM Music Hall at Fenway Park is calling your name! Snag tickets to see Boston’s most famous Celtic punk rock group, the Dropkick Murphys! They are often on tour, but always return home for St. Patrick’s Day! 

Dine at an Irish pub

Active nightlife, plenty of Guinness, and a delicious dinner are just steps away! Boston’s Irish food scene is thriving. With food ranging from traditional Irish cuisine like shepherd’s pie and bangers and mash to not-so-traditional lobster rolls, your tastebuds will thank you.

Harpoon St. Patrick’s Festival

If you want to celebrate early, head to Harpoon Brewery for their annual festival on March 8 and 9! Beer-loving folks from all over Massachusetts agree this celebration is one of the best! You’re sure to have a cheery time with the best bands in Boston and a variety of beer and local food vendors!

Explore the Irish Heritage Trail

If you’re looking for a more low-key way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, check out Boston’s Irish Heritage Trail. With three miles of sites to explore, you’ll travel through over 300 years of Irish history, art, and heroes.
