St. Patrick’s Day Activities

Embrace your Irish spirit and join us on Thursday March 17th in downtown Elkader for St. Patrick’s Day fun for all ages! The annual St. Patrick’s Day parade will kick-off at 5:30pm with the route stretching from Peace Church to Wilke’s. We are excited to announce that the parade will feature a LIVE bagpipe performance by Brian McKenzie. Those interested in having an entry in the parade need to start lining-up by 5:00pm near Central Community School. No registration or fee is needed to enter the parade. Visit the Main Street Elkader Facebook page for complete parade details. 

After the parade, stop by your favorite local restaurant to enjoy multiple Irish based specials. Live music from Trevor Rau will take place at TD’s Sports Bar, Irish themed buffet items will be featured at Johnson’s Restaurant and Irish specials will be offered all day long at Fennellys’ Irish Pub. Check out any of your favorite local restaurants to find delicious eats!

Starting Thursday March 17th pick up a punch card at any participating business, noted by a four leaf clover in their window. Make a purchase of any size at four different participating businesses to fill your punch card for your chance to win $15, $25, and $50 in Chamber Bucks.
