St Pat's Day Irish Pubs & Restaurants in Astoria, LIC, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights & Flushing

March 9, 2021 / Queens Neighborhoods / Queens Restaurants & Bars / St Pat's Parade Queens NYC / Queens Buzz NYC.

St Patrick's Day is on a Wednesday this year.

Normally there are a lot of celebrations planned for St Pat's Day in Queens. There are a at least three St Patrick's Day Parades in Queens, but they are generally held on the weekends before or after the actual St. Patrick's Day feast on March 17th.

The photo to your right was taken on St. Patrick's Day weekend in 2019 at Donovan's Pub in Woodside.

Due to the CoVid pandemic it's likely most, if not all, of the festivities will be a bit muted compared with prior years. Like no live parades. Although the Governor has extended restaurant closing times to 11 pm, and allowed indoor restaurant dining at 25% capacity, the loosening of capacity limits on indoor and outdoor gatherings doesn't happen until March 22nd, which is after the St. Pat's Day celebrations are over.

But that said, you can still visit one of your favorite Irish pubs, bars or restaurants to enjoy a libation or two to celebrate what we all hope is the beginning of the end of CoVid - if we all stay smart.

This report contains a number of brief suggestions for St. Patrick's Day bars, restaurants and Irish pubs in Queens, including in Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside, Woodside [near Jackson Heights], Bayside [near Flushing], the Rockaways [near Jamaica] and in Maspeth / Ridgewood which are near Kew Gardens and Forest Hills. At the end of the report we've included links to St. Patrick's Day celebrations in other boroughs.

Please drink responsibly and let someone else drive if you're impaired. St. Patrick's Day is a bit like New Years Eve, in that the amateur consumers of alcohol of all ethnicities come out to celebrate, and if they are not properly managed / or cared for, accidents may occur, and some of them with life changing consequences.

At a later date we'll add a bit of history of St. Patrick's Day.

St Patrick's Day Parades & St Pat's Day Celebrations in Queens

*** THE FOLLOWING PARADES WERE SCHEDULED IN PRIOR YEARS. THIS YEAR ALL HAS GONE VIRTUAL EXCEPT A RELATIVELY TINY PARADE IN MANHATTAN IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE AM TO PRESERVE THE UNINTERRUPTED CENTURIES OF ST PATRICK'S DAY PARADES IN NYC.

As mentioned in the introduction above, there are three St. Patricks Day Parades in Queens that I know of, that generally occur before and after the St. Patrick's Day feast day. They are:
