Here are five things you can do on St. Patrick’s Day in Mississauga this year.

The Rec Room

A St. Patrick’s Day party will be taking place at the Rec Room at Square One tomorrow (Mar. 17).

It is set to feature “snacks, sips and shenanigans” in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

Along with green beer, the event will also feature games, prizes, live music, a DJ and more. There will be live entertainment from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with a DJ and dancing to follow.

Check out a local pub

Regardless of whether they’ll be hosting actual events, heading to an Irish pub on St. Patrick’s Day is always a good idea.

From crowds cheering and singing to ordering green beer (which most pubs offer for the occasion), it’s a great option if you’re planning on heading out at the last minute.

Attend an afternoon celebration

Cuchulainn’s Irish Pub in Streetsville will be hosting an afternoon celebration in honour of St. Patrick’s Day.

Toronto-based band King Davis will be at the pub from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. where they’ll be playing traditional Irish songs by beloved artists.

Visit the Irish Club of Mississauga

The Irish Club of Mississauga, which is a non for profit social club that has operated for 25 years, will be hosting a full day of live entertainment.

Doors will open at noon and there will be a $10 cover charge for non-members.

“Come on out and get your green on!” reads the event page.
