-Annapolis St. Patrick's Day Parade

At some point over the past 400 years, St. Patrick’s Day became more than the religious feast it was first conceived as in the 17th century, reserved to honor the death of St. Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint. With an Irish-American population more than seven times larger than the population of Ireland, the United States celebrates the holiday in true American fashion—by going big. With a full month of events throughout the state, partake in everything from parades and pub crawls to concerts and kids’ activities to celebrate the Emerald Isle.
