Everyone’s favorite green holiday is just around the corner, are you looking for things to do for St. Patrick's Day in Colorado Springs in 2021? March 17th is Wednesday this year, and that means the celebrations and fun events are happening all over town throughout the entire weekend, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy some good celebrations and still have time to get in some weekend chores, a hike or some yoga - just remember to wear those green yoga pants!
The first (recorded) parade held for St. Patrick’s Day was in New York City, not Ireland. Thus, this global holiday celebrating Irish culture and heritage has become a cultural holiday celebrated by many here in the U.S. and throughout the world. If you enjoy any excuse to hang out with friends and family, take in a parade, eat some food, and maybe put back a few beers then thanks to the Irish, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration you can enjoy too!
Here in Colorado Springs we don’t have a river to turn green, but there’s still lots of ways to celebrate with the whole family. Although the parade for 2021 has been postponed, the good folks have decided to still host the super fun 5K run on March 13th. So, grab your green garb, some friends and family (or framily!) and a mask or two and check out the fun things to do and places to be around the Pikes Peak Region this weekend!
EVENTS for St. Patrick's Day 2021
36th Annual St. Patrick’s Day 5K
Event organizers worked extra hard this year in order to provide a safe and healthy event for 2021. Even though there is no parade this year or a kids Leprechaun fun run, there will still be a 5K run for adults and a Virtual Run. For kids, there is a newly redesigned special "Locate the Leprechaun" kids event. Registrants will receive a clue map and follow the trail to each location where they will receive trinkets along the way. This includes multiple stops at local business in downtown Colorado Springs!
