Why Waterloo Hosts the Best St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is the day we all look forward to every year! March 17th is quickly approaching, and that means it is time to break out your inner Irish and get ready to celebrate. While St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all around the world, nobody does it quite like Waterloo (except for maybe Ireland). And if you can’t make it to Ireland for the day, we are here to tell you why celebrating in Waterloo is the next best option!
1. Community

The community in Waterloo is just the start to what makes St. Patrick’s Day in Waterloo so amazing! With close to 15,000 people coming together every year, the day is filled with happiness and fun! Students, alumni, guests and Waterloo residents all have an amazing time coming together on this fun day!

2. Ezra Avenue

Ezra Avenue is without a doubt the most popular and fun place to be on St. Patrick’s Day. A packed street, with music blasting and dancing all around, is sure to make your St. Patrick’s Day one to remember. Don’t forget to be respectful and careful on the streets, as people do live here, and some do not celebrate!
