For one day, we’re all a little bit Irish. We pile on the green clothing, perhaps a red beard or a few layers of green and gold beads, and we head off in search of a day full of revelry, and perhaps a pint or two. Check out a few of the ways you can add a little green to your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with local businesses.



City Barre


First things first, you have to earn that corned beef and cabbage. Hit up City Barre for a pre-festivities barre class.

Having your own St. Patrick’s Day celebration? Forget the green glitter hats and shamrock speckled plastic tablecloths. Paisley & Jade Specialty Rentals can help you turn your event into the most chic green soiree.





River City Roll is taking the party to the parking lot with ShamROCK & Roll with music by Richmond’s favorite yacht rock band, Three Sheets to The Wind.

Plan on hitting up Shamrock the Block? Get there the green way, taking one of the two options The Pulse is offering that will take you to The Boulevard. Bonus: you won’t have to spend half the day looking for parking. While you’re there, be on the lookout for specialty St. Patrick’s Day themed cocktails from Richmond’s own, Belle Isle Moonshine. If you’re going to be spending all day traipsing up and down The Boulevard, your feet are going to need a little TLC from The Good Feet Store.
