2015 St. Patrick’s Day Events Edmonton AB
St. Patrick’s Day is one of our favorite times of the year. Not only is it an opportunity to celebrate Irish heritage and culture as a community, but it also signifies the very beginning of spring. As Edmonton residents come out from their winter dwellings to (hopefully) find some warmth and sunshine, there are plenty of nearby events and activities for you to show off your best green outfit, enjoy a Guinness or two, and get a plate full of corned beef and cabbage. If you’re looking for something to do on the holiday weekend, check out these 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Events near Edmonton IN.
