Going Green: Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

By: Tabitha Armstrong | 03.12.18

Do You Have A Touch of the Irish in Ya?

On St. Paddy’s Day, I think we all do!

And with this Saint Patrick’s Day falling on a Saturday, there are a lot of celebrations to choose from.

We wanted to share all of these events with our readers, and so we have compiled the most extensive list you can find anywhere on the Internet, at least for Vermont’s NEK that is.

This list is far from complete, I will be adding to it throughout the week as I reach more restaurants and bars…

So check back often.

Events are sorted by county, then town, alphabetically.

Click the name of the restaurant to get more detailed information about the business.
