St. Patrick’s Day Activities in Columbus Ohio

There are quite a few things to do over the weekend and into the week for St. Patrick’s Day.


  • The Shamrock Club of Columbus hosts the St. Patrick’s Day parade and it is always held on the 17th. This year the parade is down town Columbus.

The Parade will step off at 11:45am and proceed East on Nationwide Blvd.”

    The parade will take place on Saturday, March 14 at 11 a.m. The parade route will start at the Metro Center Plaza and end in Historic Dublin.”
