St. Patrick's Day is coming on Friday March 17th, and Missoula is going to be celebrating the event in a big way this year. St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday this year, which means a lot of the events will be happening the week before the big day. Specifically on Saturday March 11th. Make sure you mark your calendars for the events.

St. Patrick's Day Is On A Friday

There will be lots of activity around Missoula on actual St. Patrick's Day, Friday March 17th. The Backcountry Brewfest 2023 will be happening downtown Caras Park. You may also hear some pipes playing downtown throughout the day. Next year St. Patrick's Day falls on a Sunday, because of the Leap Year, so everything will probably be jam packed into one weekend. Saturday March 18th will be a day of rest for the Irish. Be safe this St. Patrick's Day and enjoy a week full of fun.
