Your Musical Guide to St. Patricks Day in the Quad Cities - The Echo

The Midwest adopts a Texan identity when it comes to holidays, especially St. Patricks Day. If you didn’t already know our Bi-State St. Patricks Day Parade is one of the largest bi-state parades in the country. While we could dive into how hilarious and kind of kick-ass that is, we’re going to stick to what we do best. With St. Patty’s Day falling mid-week, the 2022 celebrations are spread between the two outlining weekends, so finding the best party to attend can be a bit tricky. Here is the full list of musical celebrations happening through Mar. 20.

Saint Patricks Day Bash @ the Mississippi Valley Fair Grounds

The MVF Crew is working its way up to the summer festivities with a weekend full of music. Catch local acts on both Friday and Saturday. For more information, check out their website.

Honorable Mention

St. Patricks Day @ the Coffee House 

If you can’t make it out to any of these shows, making a point to take a portion of your work day at the Coffee House may be the perfect way to still get some holiday celebrations in. Roger Carlson will be playing Celtic and renaissance music alongside friends from 1-3 pm. Pair that with one of the coffee flights and you’ll basically be transported to another country altogether. Find more details here.

Head to Twin Span for a stellar pint and stellar tunes from father/daughter duo Alex and Alan. Find more details here.

Paddygrass @ Rhythm City Casino 

This is a true St. Patrick’s Day show to celebrate with. Toast to the Irish with traditional Irish drinking songs and maybe even work on your Irish dancing skills at Rhythm City Casino. Who knows, but the luck of the Irish will be with you. 😉 Find tickets and details here.
