St. Patrick's Day Celebrations: Calgary West Side

May the luck of the Irish be with you! St. Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day, or Feast of Saint Patrick "the Day of the Festival of Patrick", is a religious and cultural celebration held on 17 March. Tradition says that Saint Patrick died on this date and was buried. Over centuries, numerous legends arose around Patrick and he became the patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by many Churches. This day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. It celebrates the culture and heritage of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve "ceilis", public parades and festivals, and the wearing of shamrocks or green attire. Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in many countries and is widely celebrated around the world - is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. Christians also attend church services and historical restrictions on drinking alcohol and eating are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and publicized the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption. 

So in keeping with the tradition, we have recommended a few places in Calgary's West end to join in the celebrations!

Ferguson & Bix Restaurant and Beer Market - West Springs

St. Patty's day is supposed to bring the luck of the Irish, so they've got $5.00 Wooden Ship craft beers coming at you all day Saturday and Sunday - but there's a catch - you have to ask for the green version.
But seriously, if you do, we'll send 50 cents from each over to Four Feet Companion Foundation to give them some luck, too.
Happy St. Patty's Day!
