Your Guide to St. Patrick's Day Parties in Metro Phoenix in 2022
By: Phoenix News Times
As you might expect, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations have been sidelined the past two years for completely obvious reasons. In 2020, it coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic reaching the Valley, causing almost every local party to be canceled. Last year, only a handful of events took place as most local bars played it safe.
This year is a different story, boy-o. Practically every watering hole across the metro Phoenix area, including more than a dozen Irish pubs, has something planned for Thursday, March 17. There will be parties happening inside bars, out in the streets, and under tents. Most will serve up such St. Patrick’s Day requisites as green hats, Irish musicians, and corned beef and cabbage.
