St. Patrick’s Events in Tualatin Valley: Four fun things to do in March
After a couple years of canceled events, we’re excited that the St. Patrick’s celebrations are back on this March! From a mud run to Irish dance, these are the festive activities scheduled this year. Sláinte!
The Dirty Leprechaun 5k and 10k Mud Run
The Dirty Leprechaun 5k and 10k Mud Run is back this year at Lee Farms in Tualatin. Celebrate the holiday a wee early, Saturday, March 12th. Race on muddy terrain while overcoming over 20 obstacles. All skill levels are welcome! Participants will run the course in waves to keep everyone socially distanced and safe. This year, a virtual option is also available allowing participants to run indoors on a treadmill or outside on your favorite trail. Visit terrapinevents.com to register.
St. Paddy’s Day party:
Party like an Irishman at Three Mugs Brewing Company in Hillsboro for its annual St. Paddy’s Day party, March 17 from 3-10 p.m. Enjoy food from Fresh Thyme Soup Company and a special beer release. Prizes will be awarded for best dressed. This party is BYOK (bring your own kilt)! Go to threemugsbrewing.com for more events.
St. Patrick’s Day Celebration:
McMenamin’s Grand Lodge in Forest Grove hosts its annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration March 17-19. It’s all about the luck o’ the Irish with live music, food and beverage specials. Enjoy a McMenamins Irish Shout, a “flavor fusion” of tastes of coffee-like roasted barley and semi-sweet chocolate. The event is free and open for all ages. Learn more at mcmenamins.com.
You don’t have to be Irish to have fun!
S and A Irish Entertainment hosts an Irish Ceili dance class each Wednesday at the Winona Grange in Tualatin. This year, St. Patrick’s Day just happens to be on a Wednesday (March 17), so kick up your heels and dance a jig. Classes are $10. Visit irishpdx.com for more information.
