The National Shamrock Festival annually held at RFK Stadium is the most massive and wild celebration of Irish heritage in Washington. If you are not a fan of rock you can spend this day in a pub. Most local pubs have special menus and special offers for St. Paddy's. You can also visit a fountain on the North Side of the White House that is often coloured green on this day.
