Luck of the Irish: St. Patrick's Day Feast and Parade

Get in the Irish spirit for St. Patrick's Day this year with a trip to the Triangle for Raleigh's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival.

The parade is one of the largest St. Patrick's Day parades in the Southeast with more than 3,500 participants every year.

 This year's parade is Saturday March 12 at noon in downtown Raleigh.

The parade will begin at the intersection of Cabarrus and Wilmington Streets and run down Fayetteville , Wilmington and Blount Streets and end in Moore Square , where the Raleigh St. Patrick's Day Festival will take place after the parade.
Learn more about the Irish tradition through live music, dancing and local Irish organizations. Enjoy authentic Irish food, jewelry and children's games and activities.

For more information on the parade, visit their website

Continue festivities in the spirit of St. Patrick the next weekend and take advantage of the opportunity to learn Irish cuisine from one of the best, Chef Phil.
Stay at the Arrowhead Inn during March 17th - 20th for a wonderful Irish feast and cooking class.  All for $65 per person ($130/couple) in addition to the room charges. We finally coaxed Chef Phil to share his famous scone recipes. He will be offering a scone-making class on Saturday, March 19th at 10:30 AM. Space is limited. Package includes recipe and scones to go.

Chef Phil is also creating a fabulous St. Patrick’s Dinner for his Irish Feast nightly, March 17th, 18th & 19th at 6:30PM at $45/person plus tax and gratuities
