There’s no excuse for not celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year in Baltimore – whether you come from a long line of Gaelic ancestry or you’re simply Irish for the day, get together with friends and family for a fun celebration as the city lights up with sights, sounds, and color this March!

When you want to get out and experience the best the area has to offer this St. Patty’s Day you don’t need the hassle of driving through chaotic traffic, navigating street closures, or finding that elusive parking spot – we’ll help you to simply enjoy the day. Most importantly, if you’re planning to raise a glass or two to celebrate the day, you don’t want to worry about what to do with your car or nominating that unlucky friend as the designated driver. You can trust in our reliable, safe, and professional Baltimore car service to let you concentrate on the festivities of the day without any unwanted distractions. We have a huge range of vehicles to suit your unique requirements – from family-friendly SUVs and state-of-the-art sedans, to modern, luxurious group-friendly limos.

Why not get your whole group together and start the day off with the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Baltimore – the parade kicks off at the Washington Monument at 2 pm on March 11, moving down Charles Street then east on Pratt Street before ending up at Market Place. Join the thousands of spectators watching the spectacular celebration of Irish culture and tradition, now in its 60th year. If you’re feeling energetic and want to start the day off with a bang, then why not register for the Shamrock 5k Race taking place directly prior to the parade itself at 1.15pm. All finishers will receive a T-shirt, medal, and will get to take part in a post-race celebration featuring live music from Baltimore favorites What’s Next, and a free beer for all over 21 to get your celebrations started!

The Washington, DC Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, on March 11, 2018. Noon to 3:00 p.m. Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with a parade along Constitution Avenue – 7th to 17th Streets NW.

This two-and-a-half hour special event, known as the Nation’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, will include floats, marching bands, pipe bands, military, police, and fire departments.

Of course, local Irish pubs will sponsor parade parties featuring Irish musicians, dancers, and singers. St. Patrick’s Day is a family day, bringing people together to share the culture of the Irish.

Back in Baltimore, if you’re looking for a twist on the traditional Irish pub-crawl revelry, try partying on the water instead of on a special St. Patrick’s Day river cruise. There are a couple of different options to choose from depending on your preferences for the day – if you are planning to get together for a relaxing evening with friends, then gather your group and book a 3-hour Dinner Cruise which kicks off at 7pm and features spectacular views over the harbor to the city beyond, a buffet dinner, live DJ, and plenty of fun with St. Patty’s Day-themed games to keep you in the Irish spirit.

If you’d rather party until the small hours book yourself a spot on the 2-hour St. Patrick’s Day Moonlight Cruise which sets sail on the Patapsco River at midnight and features a special moonlight buffet menu and a nightclub atmosphere with a top DJ playing all the hottest party tunes until the early hours.

Not the parade type? Go to the National Shamrock Fest on March 17, 2018, at the RFK Stadium Festival Grounds for the largest Saint Patrick’s Day party in the region Featuring Irish food, drinks, and fun activities for all ages the festival includes craft vendors, an Irish Village, carnival rides and games, and much more. The Shamrock Fest is the largest Saint Patrick’s Day party in the region featuring more than 30 bands and DJs on five stages.

There is so much going on in the area in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to find the perfect event or concert to make the holiday special.
