St. Patrick’s Celebrations
Celebrate the luck o’ the Irish this St. Patrick’s Day weekend with these fun and festive events.
Friday, March 15 through Sunday, March 17
St. Patrick’s Day Across the Land at the McMenamins Grand Lodge goes all out with live music, bagpipers, leprechauns, Irish coffee cocktails, and McMenamins’ classic Irish stout all weekend long. (Free admission; all ages welcome).
Saturday, March 16
The Dirty Leprechaun 5k Run features more than 20 challenging (and through-the-mud) obstacles. Your reward for a run well done is music, food and a bonfire waiting for you across the finish line.
The annual Murphy’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a sea of green, as it rolls down the streets of downtown Hillsboro. At the parade’s endpoint, indulge in a hearty Irish meal or let the kids burn off energy with some outdoor games.
Sunday, March 17
Blizzard Wines hosts a St. Patty’s Brunch, a six-course Irish-inspired brunch prepared by Chef Patty Vance. Of course, each plate is paired with one of Blizzard’s own wines. ($50 per person; purchase tickets here).
