Enjoy an Festive Beverage

One of the first things that comes to mind when you think of St. Patrick’s Day is adult beverages! If you can partake, you will find lots of Irish drinks around Breckenridge. Here are a few of our favorites:

Tune into Irish Tunes

Lúnasa, named after an ancient Celtic harvest festival honoring the Irish god Lugh, will be performing at the Riverwalk Center just ahead of St. Patrick’s Day! This group will be performing traditional and contemporary Irish music. As described by BreckCreate, “…the band’s complex arrangements and unique sound reshaped the boundaries of traditional music and energized audiences the world over. Twenty years on, the group continues to evolve, playing new music that is as state-of-the-art and aggressively infectious today as it was so long ago.” Celebrate the holiday by dancing to live Irish music!
