St. Patrick’s Day Events & Activities in Lakeland + Polk County

St. Patrick's Day Lakeland

St. Patrick’s Day is coming soon (March 17), and although you probably won’t find any local festivities rivaling Savannah or Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day events, we do have activities to celebrate the Irish and get into the St. Patty’s Day spirit.

Irish Pubs in Lakeland

For 2022, there aren’t a lot of organized events for St. Patrick’s Day, but you can still find some Irish luck on your own. Find an Irish Pub near you for corned beef, cabbage, shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, and other Irish favorites.

Many attraction closures and event postponements have been announced beginning September 27 due to Hurricane Ian. We are editing our calendar and articles if we receive notice of event changes, but please be sure to check directly with organizers to confirm any events or activities through October 9. A link is provided at the bottom of every event on our calendar and in all articles.
