Phoenix, Arizona is best known for its gorgeous desert landscape and consistently warm weather. But did you know that this city is also one with a whole lot of Irish spirit? Phoenix residents celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with pride each year, and they even call March 17 “the greenest day on the desert.”
Just about everyone in Phoenix participates in St. Patty’s Day celebrations. There’s an annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Faire in the heart of the city, which includes everything from local community groups to green beer and green horses. There’s also a ton of traditional Irish culture to experience, including art, music, and food.
