The event that officially kicks off the San Francisco Festival season, St. Patrick's Day in San Francisco is the largest St. Paddy's day celebration west of the Mississippi. This year it falls on March 16th.
What that means for visitors is tons of fun, including a giant parade down Market Street, a weekend long bash full of live music in the Civic Center and tons of after parties at neighborhood bars. For more check out my complete Guide to St. Patrick's Day in San Francisco.
