For one weekend a year, the Irish take over Idaho in all the best ways. The beer becomes greener, the music livelier, and the fashion more… shall we say, kilt-forward? We’re talking about St. Patrick’s Day weekend of course. If you aren’t sure how best to celebrate, you’re in luck. This year, Idahoan’s are going all out to make it the best holiday weekend yet. Here are the best St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Idaho!
The St. Paddy’s Day Celebration at the Mad Swede Brewing Company is another fantastic way to enjoy the holiday weekend. Enjoy some green beer while you watch the Uptown Chiefs perform.
The Shamrock Package is the best way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on a resort. Enjoy a live DJ, Irish décor, dancing, whiskey, food, beer, and more. Get your best leprechaun costume ready for the costume contest and take part in the exclusive hot tub infinity pool cocktail area.

The Brundage Mountain Resort is a great place to spend a weekend even when it isn’t a holiday, but they go above and beyond to make sure their guest’s St. Patrick’s Day is extra special.
