Windsor, Ontario is a great party town full of activity. So, when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, you can always rest assured knowing that there will be plenty to do. The only question is, can you pack it all in?
Here’s our Ultimate Guide to 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Events in Windsor. If you’re heading out to celebrate, please do so responsibly.
EVENTS AT BREWERIES
It’s no secret. People love to drink beer on Paddy’s Day. While doing so, why not support the incredible craft beer scene in the city by celebrating at one of the local breweries. They’re all throwing great parties.
When a party has a lineup start at ten in the morning you know it’s a good one.
Last year, The Manchester threw one heck of a St. Paddy’s party that had people lining up first thing in the morning to be a part of and they’re expecting a repeat this year. There’s a great musical lineup from the moment the doors open, Irish inspired dishes and giveaways.
More into food than beer? Thyme Kitchen is getting into the spirit with a special menu offering dishes from corned beef and Swiss to a Luck of the Irish Breakfast. They’re available all weekend long.
THE THIRSTY BUTLER
With corned beef sandwiches and a beer for only $12, The Thirsty Butler would be a worth stop. They’ll also be offering live entertainment and Irish beer and whiskey special.

Head to The Loose Goose for some fun and a loaded menu if you’ve got yourself an appetite. From Drunken Chicken Pot Pie to haddock and chips to their popular wings, it’s sure to be a popular destination in downtown Windsor.
