St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and lucky for you, there is plenty to do while staying in Billings MT! The Billing’s community would like to invite you to the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Celtic Street Fair that will take place in Downtown Billings. This will be a fun and family-friendly event where all can gather to celebrate and learn more about the Irish heritage and traditions. All money from the event will go to some Downtown Billings Alliance Programs such as the Public Art Program and the Spare Change for Real Change program. This year, head over to Downtown Billings for a St. Patrick’s day celebration unlike any you’ve ever experienced before!
At the entertainment stage located at 1st Avenue North and Broadway, you can stop by and listen to live Irish music. The band will be performing all-day and even into the evening! There will also be an Irish Beer Garden hosted by Hooligans out on the street. Get all the Irish beer you’ll need here! At 2nd Avenue N. and Broadway there will be a Family Stage, which will be the place to bring your kids for a fun time. Choose from a variety of fun activities such as face-painting and balloon making for the kids. The Arts and Crafts vendors will be located on Broadway from 3rd Avenue N to 1st Avenue N. Stroll through blocks of vendors and look at the number of Irish trinkets and other items that you can take home with you to help you remember this fun event. As you spend your day at the Celtic Fair, you might get hungry but don’t worry – there will be some food vendors throughout the event as well. The parade will take place between North 26th street and North 19th street. Be sure to join in on all of the St. Patrick’s Day fun!.
