Things to do for St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado Springs 2020

Please note: several events including the St. Patrick's Day Parade have been cancelled or postponed. Please check with the event organizer for details.

Everyone’s favorite green holiday is just around the corner, are you looking for things to do in in Colorado Springs for St. Patrick’s Day? March 17th is Tuesday this year, and that means the celebrations and fun events are happening all over town throughout the entire weekend, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy some good celebrations and still have time to get in some weekend chores, a hike or some yoga – just remember to wear those green yoga pants!

The first (recorded) parade held for St. Patrick’s Day was in New York City, not Ireland. Thus, this global holiday celebrating Irish culture and heritage has become a cultural holiday celebrated by many here in the U.S. and throughout the world. If you enjoy any excuse to hang out with friends and family, take in a parade, eat some food, and maybe put back a few beers then thanks to the Irish, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration you can enjoy too!

Here in Colorado Springs we don’t have a river to turn green, but there’s still lots of ways to celebrate with the whole family starting with the 36th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. With over a 100 parade entries, marching bands and more, this is always a fantastic event post one of the largest 5K runs in the state. So, grab your green garb, some friends and family (or framily!) and check out the fun things to do and places to be around the Pikes Peak Region this weekend!
