Saint Patrick’s Day in Vermont’s NEK 2021

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day 2021

It’s Time!

Last Year, we posted our St. Patrick’s Celebrations just in time for Lock Down. But this year, our local restaurants are open, and they are producing delicious food. So browse through these local specials and  reserve your St. Pattrick’s Day meal or book your plans as soon as possible!

There are still restrictions in place, but our restaurants are making the best of it!

Saint Patrick’s Day is on  a Wednesday this year, so while some restaurants will be celebrating mid week, others will focus their events this coming weekend.

We wanted to share all of these events with our readers, and so we have compiled the most extensive list of NEK St. Patrick’s Day events and specials you’ll find anywhere on the Internet.

Take a look at what’s happening – and check back as we’ll update as we hear more from more restaurants…

Events are sorted by county, then town, alphabetically.

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