images from IrelandIf you missed the Madison parade and want to do a little more than going through the McDonald’s drive thru for a Shamrock shake, here are some fun activities in the Madison, WI area for St. Patrick’s Day:

Indulge in an Irish dinner at the Great Dane! They will be serving green beer, Irish food specials, and music from DJ Mike Carlson beginning at 9 p.m.

The Monona Terrace will be hosting an evening with rigel (Modern Celtic Music), that is free and open to the public! Themed menu specials, snacks, beer, cocktails, and soft drinks are available for purchase beginning at 5 p.m. Enjoy an evening of dancing and great music with friends!

The Overture Center on State Street hosts Danú, a leading Irish traditional ensemble! Admission is $17-$27 and begins at 7:30 p.m. What is better than to marvel in the musical journey to the native Ireland and spend a memorable St. Patrick’s Day with Danú?

The Pints, a local Celtic band, is coming to the University of Wisconsin campus. From 9:30 p.m. – 11:55 p.m., enjoy a night at Der Rathskeller in Memorial Union to continue the St. Patrick’s Day celebration! This event is free and open to the public.

"Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter. Lullabies, dreams and love ever after. Poems and songs with pipes and drums. A thousand welcomes when anyone comes... That's the Irish for you!"
