Tulsa’s no stranger to Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations. The following are a few highlights:

Presented by RunnersWorld Tulsa, the annual St. Patrick’s Day Run 2022 is March 12 starting at 41st and Peoria. 

Broken Arrow is bringing the fun with Shamrock the Rose District Festival. 

“Join us March 12 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the heart of Broken Arrow’s Art and Entertainment hotspot, the Rose District,” says Debra Wimpee, the festival’s organizer. “To date, the event has raised over $80,000 for Soldier’s Wish as well as funds for the Pride of Broken Arrow and BA Football Booster Club.”  The 3-block event is free, family-friendly and features live music, a craft beer garden and over 100 vendors.

Also on March 12, celebrate all things Irish at Claremore’s annual St. Paddy’s Party, centered around 419 W. Will Rogers Blvd., including live music, dance performances and more.  

A cozy Irish tavern with an outdoor patio, Arnie’s Bar in downtown Tulsa’s Blue Dome is a great spot for some Harp, Killian’s, Guinness or other mug from an extensive beer menu, with happy hour specials from 2 to 8 p.m. daily. For more fun in the Blue Dome, an entire St. Patrick’s Day weekend of fun includes music, dancing and beers from James E. McNellie’s Public House. The event is held all day over a five-block radius with live music and local retailers.

On March 22, check out the Ross O’ Spillman St. Patrick’s Day Party and Fundraiser at the Greenwood Cultural Center, with musical performances including Jump Suit Love to benefit the Sandite Child Development Center.
