St. Patrick’s Day Parades (And Other & Activities) in KC

Your little leprechauns love St Patrick’s Day and you are in luck, Kansas City is the perfect place to celebrate. KC kicks off  our day of green with many exciting St. Patrick’s Day parades & events, as well as activities in the days prior. Did you know our St. Pattie’s Day Parade is one of the largest in the country? From St. Patrick’s Day parades to family fun runs, KC is a wonderful place to be this time of year.

Grab the kids and explore these exciting opportunities to discover St. Patrick’s Day traditions throughout KC. I still remember taking the kiddos to the Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day parade — after they covered our car in green face paint. So, get out there and make family memories of your own; they’ll probably give you a good laugh later.


Kids on St Patricks Day

Our mom squad gathered the go-to list of St. Patrick’s Day fun in Kansas City, giving your family plenty of fun to partake in. The parades are fun for the whole family and who doesn’t enjoy dressing in green? (Or pinching those who don’t..) So, sit back, relax, & enjoy your pint of beer – or watch your husband chug his.
