Where to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in and around Fairfield County

Happy St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up on March 17 and ya best know that Connecticut is representin’ the best of the Irish.  In particular, we feel especially excited this year because we’ll be traveling to Ireland this year.  Yes!  There will be plenty o’ pints, Irish breakfasts, boxty, and fried stuff.  We can’t promise that we’ll be trying blood sausage or blood pudding, but we will probably eat almost everything that’s placed in front of us.  But, we see it as kind of prep work to get some great Irish experiences, food, and culture here before we leave.  Already, last week, we saw The Mighty Ploughboys and The Tartan Terrors perform at Ridgefield Playhouse.  Yeah, awesome…so, we wanted to give you a little bit o’ Ireland with this post.  We’ll be updating this here and there with fun food related events that revolve around St. Patrick’s Day.  If you have any suggestions for us, let us know!


1) Check out the Bridgeport St. Patrick’s Day Parade on 3/15 from the warm comforts of Barnum Publick House!  The fun begins at 11, so get settled because the parade will start at noon.  There are food and drink specials all day with no cover charge.

2) Get some Kegs & Eggs at Fire Engine Pizza Company on St. Patrick’s Day!  $10 gets you beer and breakfast from 8-11 am.  You can also check out their corned beef reuben or bangers & mash pizza all day, too.  


3) St. Patrick’s Day lasts a week at Molly Darcy’s!  Specials and live entertainment all week.

Elmsford, NY

4)  Yes, we realize it’s not Connecticut, but the lure of good beer is so hard to resist.  You’ll want to check out Bollock’s Fest ’13 at Captain Lawrence Brewery on 3/17 at noon.  Burke’s Revenge will be playing live music such as Dropkick Murphys and Village Dog will be there pushing out corned beef dogs, shepherd’s pie, and lots more.  The clincher is that Brewmaster extraordinare Scott Vaccaro will be premiering three Irish “inspired” ales.  Tickets are $21.69 per person and can be bought here.
