St. Patrick’s Day — Chicago 2019

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend in Chicago is one of their biggest events they hold every year!

I’ve been attending for the last several years (literally) and it’s always been a blast each time! Every neighborhood downtown has their own bar crawl, there’s a huge parade in The Loop, and most importantly, the dyeing of the Chicago River.

Chicago is known for dyeing their river green each year and thousand of people come out of hibernation to go see it! Luckily, it was a little warmer this time thanks to the sunlight! I would definitely recommend checking it out if you’re ever in town for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s nice to see in person compared to the photos. I believe they dye the river at 9 a.m and it stays green for about five hours or so.



Since this is such a huge event, every place is jammed packed with lines out the door! It’s honestly really crazy at the bars because some of the bar crawls start at 8 A.M, so many people are black out drunk before noon. It’s even crazier near Wrigleyville, so we steered clear of that direction! Wrigleyville used to be fun when I was younger and had intentions of getting drunk and blacking out, but I’ve stayed in River North the last three years. It’s still a wild time, but not out of control like Wrigley.πŸ˜‰





All in all, St. Patrick’s in Chicago is a MUST! Especially if you’re into partying and the whole social scenes! There’s no better way to spend the weekend other than with good company and green beers! Chicago will not let you down if you ever decide to join the party!πŸ’š

  3. I’ve always wanted to go to Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day. When I lived in Tampa, they used to die the river green as well, but the party was nothing like what happens in Chicago!

  4. Someday I would love to visit Chicago during St. Patrick’s Day, if nothing else, to see the river dyed green. That in itself, would be so neat! Everything you mention sounds like so much fun!

  5. I have seen a few people in the area post pictures of the river after it has been dyed, and I’ve always wanted to make the trip to see it first hand! Maybe I’ll make a point of heading to Chicago for St Patrick’s Day 2020!
