Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

  By  Visit Myrtle Beach

Are you spending St. Patrick’s Day weekend at The Beach? Lucky you! The Grand Strand boasts a ton of fun ways to celebrate the Irish holiday. From local parades and family festivals to green beer and delicious Irish fare, here are some of our picks on what to do this St. Patty’s Day weekend:

North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick’s Day Festival and Parade

The 34th Annual North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick’s Day Festival and Parade is always one of the biggest celebrations of the weekend. The annual, one-day event features a large parade beginning at 9 am on Saturday, March 16, followed by the festival lasting from 11 am to 4 pm. The festival features around 150 vendors from food to crafts to services and more and boasts three stages of live music and entertainment and a children’s area with rides. This popular event happens rain or shine and attracts around 40,000 people each year. The festivities are located on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach and are all just a quick walk away from the beach. 

Murrells Inlet Luck of the Marshwalk

This event is on March 17th beginning at 5 pm and will offer a chance for attendees to try their luck and win over $1000 in cash and prizes. All are encouraged to dress up in their best St. Patrick’s Day green, and secret leprechauns will roam around the parties giving out colored coins to their favorite costumed attendees. Additionally, participants can collect colored coins from each restaurant and bar in Murrells Inlet and along Marshwalk. These coins give participants a chance to win one of the secret leprechaun prizes. Additionally, all Marshwalk restaurants will offer food and drink specials and live music throughout evening.
