Claremore is gearing up for our annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration (the flags are already up downtown). This year will be bigger and better than ever, and we’re not just saying that.

First up is the Bangers & Mash Lunch, which is held Friday, March 15, in the Claremore Progress parking lot. Lunch will be served from 11a – 1p and it’s always delicious! The traditional Irish meal is $7. There will be Irish music and the “Not a Parade” Stroll.

The St. Paddy’s Party will be held on Sunday, March 17. This year we have TWO locations: Main Street Tavern (starting at 6p) and J Farley’s Pub (starting at noon)! St. Paddy’s Party attendees will enjoy great local, Irish bands and dancers, while partaking of delicious food and a fun atmosphere at the outdoor party! Admission to the event is free and open to the public.

Those who imbibe can purchase refreshing beer (Guinness & Guinness Blonde), whiskey, and spirits in a limited outdoor menu. Guests can also purchase brat dogs outside during the event. Inside the Tavern, guests can enjoy a limited food menu and a full-service bar.

A specialty St. Paddy’s Day Party cup, which gets you a dollar off each of your beers at the party, will be on sale. Additionally, T-shirts and trinkets will be on sale as well. The festivities will run from 12p – 10p. There will also be a free trolley from 2p – 10:30p to safely get you between the two locales.

Don’t miss the fun night out in Claremore!
