St. Patrick’s Day in Tampa

Whether you’re from Ireland or not,  there’s an undeniable sense of spirit in the air on St. Patrick’s Day. “Kiss me I’m Irish” t-shirts, shamrock sunglasses, dyed red beards and leprechaun hats are adorned by your neighbors, classmates, colleagues, and friends. Drinks, eggs, and rivers turn green and traditional Celtic music is played on radios around the world.

While many cities participate in St. Patrick’s Day festivities no one does it quite like Tampa.

Here are a few family-friendly events happening in Tampa this St. Patrick’s Day weekend:

  • 2019 Annual River O’Green Scavenger Hunt
    • When:  Saturday, Mar 16, 2019, at 2:00 PM
    • Details: Participants in the scavenger hunt will race around downtown and along the Riverwalk to be the first to complete 20 riddles/tasks at participating bars, venues and parks. Tickets are $20 and proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels of Tampa. So get a team of 1-5 people together and enjoy a day running around the city solving riddles, and playing games. This event is suitable for older kids. Young kids will be able to enjoy other activities at Curtis Hixon Park during this event.
  • St. Patrick’s Day Mayor’s River O’ Green Fest 2019
