Find St. Paddy’s Day Fun in Bellingham & Whatcom County - 2023

When it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, Bellingham and Whatcom County know how to do it right! It’s true, there is no place like Bellingham for St. Patrick’s Day (or St. Patrick's Weekend.) We have created a guide to all things Irish in Bellingham and Whatcom County. From local activities to foodie specials, we have everything to help you celebrate.

March 11

Bellinghamʼs St. Patrickʼs Day parade is a great chance to have fun and connect with our community! 

The parade is in honor of the Bellingham Police and Fire Departments, but itʼs also a chance to green up our community and celebrate all the great businesses, groups, schools and nonprofits that make this community what it is.

Join us for this free community wide event and help us celebrate all the ways we can make Bellingham greener!

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
