Top 5 St. Patrick’s Weekend Parties in Missoula

Of all the holidays that Missoula celebrates, St. Patrick’s Day may be one of the oddest. Think about it: we’re celebrating the patron saint of Ireland who we really don’t know all that much about. And stranger still, we honor this mysterious Saint Patrick by wearing green and consuming vast quantities of beer. And somewhere along the line, someone decided that people not wearing green should receive swift punishment in the form of pinches?

We’ve compiled (with the help of our friends at the 5 best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Weekend in the Missoula. It is by no means a complete list — virtually every bar in town throws some semblance of a party around March 17. So here’s what we’ve come up with! and by all means, plug any event that hasn’t been covered in the comment section below.
