St Patrick's Day Celebrations

God Bless St. Patrick in Buenos Aires! Yes, this is the same famous Irish holiday in Argentina, better known as El Dia de San Patricio, which is celebrated around March 17th. The holiday is organized by the Argentina-Ireland Association and the Irish Embassy in Buenos Aires. So, let's dive into the details!

The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is held in Buenos Aires, and it is among the largest St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the world. The event starts at noon on Avenida de Mayo, along which you'll see stalls with food and drinks. Considering that approximately 500 thousand Irish people are living in Argentina, the event is a huge deal. After the parade, you'll get a chance to witness popular Irish shows with live music and dancing, rock bands, and Irish dance troupes. The streets of the capital are full of costumed elves, fairies, bagpipers, and Irish dancers. You are also welcome to visit the numerous Irish pubs, offering dark beer and traditional Irish dishes, cooked in the Argentinian style.

If you plan to attend the parade as a spectator, be sure to bring weather-relevant clothes and accessories, such as sunglasses for a sunny day and a jacket for colder weather. Plus, remember about the dress code: you want to wear all green, white, or orange (the Irish flag colors) and all together! Lastly, we suggest booking your accommodation in advance as Buenos Aires gets very busy this time of year.
