Escape the cold back home and come to sunny Arizona to celebrate Scottsdale St. Patrick’s Day. This holiday is typically not thought of as being a traveling holiday; however, you will find an abundance of exciting activities and special events waiting for you in Scottsdale. Take a look at what is waiting this St. Paddy’s Day:
2020 Phoenix St. Patrick’s Day Faire
You will find an exciting all-ages event for St. Patrick’s Day this year at the annual Phoenix St. Patrick’s Day Faire. This event will take place at nearby Margaret T. Hance Park for an all-day celebration. This year’s event will have a variety of activities including bagpipers, Irish step dancing, live Irish music, arts and crafts, and much more. A children’s area will also be open, letting your children run around having a blast while you get to check out the Irish beer on tap. The 2020 Phoenix St. Patrick’s Day Faire will take place on Saturday March 14th.
Scottsdale Shamrock Crawl
While there are several all-ages events you can attend, St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that is often best enjoyed by the adults. Old Town Scottsdale will be hosting their annual Scottsdale Shamrock Crawl on Saturday March 14th for an afternoon of drinks and shenanigans. Every bar in Old Town will be open for this special event where you gain free entry to all the bars after purchasing a wristband. The wristband also entails you to three penny ($.01) drink specials at any of the bars. Expect to find all the bars decked out in their best St. Patrick’s Day decorations. The Scottsdale Shamrock Crawl will take place from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Annual Shamrock Half Marathon
Another popular event in Scottsdale is the annual Shamrock Half Marathon. This race is entering its fourth year and offers plenty of fun for everyone. The different races include the half marathon, 10K, and 5K, so you can pick a distance perfect for you. This year’s event has been moved to Kiwanis Park, located in our sister city of Tempe. The event starts at 8:00 AM and early registration is still open!
