What to Do in Tulsa on St. Patrick's Day

McNellie's Sidebar


It's no secret that Tulsa knows how to party on St. Pat's. We have two of the largest St. Pat's celebrations in the state - one in the Blue Dome District downtown and the other not far away on Cherry Street - not to mention a host of other parties happening around town.

With the multitude of party destinations and green beer taps in the T-Town area, it's not hard to get confuzzled about where to go to make the most of your one-day pass with the luck of the Irish. See below for where to go for St. Pat's this year.

And remember, T-Town - remember to drink responsibly. And locally.
