Celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day in Calgary

  • A group of friends enjoys dinner in a pub together.
In Calgary, your Saint Patrick’s Day can be as action-packed as you want it to be. You can start early with breakfast in the pub and keep going all day.

Or, if you like things a bit quieter, head to the Calgary Farmers’ Market, followed by a stop at Crave to pick up a dozen Bailey’s cupcakes, which are available only once a year. Either way, make plans to head out and enjoy the music, dancing, food, and atmosphere.
