Celebrations for St. Patrick Day Panama City Beach
The Saturday before St. Patrick Day is the Annual “Where St. Andrews Meets St. Patrick” Sidewalk March. Hang out at one of the many restaurants along Beck Avenue in the afternoon and watch the green parade go by to the sound of bagpipes. It begins at Oaks By the Bay Park and ends at Gracie Rae Bar & Grill. Past participants on Panama City Beach St. Patrick’s Day have included Panama City Pipes and Drums and the Niall O’Leary School of Irish Dance.
Impromptu pub crawls pop up all over the United States on St. Patrick Day, so why not create one of your own? Here are some favorite Irish Pubs in Panama City Beach for you to choose from when you’re making your plans.
Beef’O’Brady’s, a sports bar in Panama City Beach, is a favorite for St. Patrick Day events. This warm, friendly sports bar features American food with award-winning wings and light fare available.
House of Henry, which has Irish cuisine and live music, is a favorite across the Florida panhandle. The menu has delicious Irish fare, with Irish Nachos, Celtic Curds, Guinness BBQ Burger on the main menu as a few Irish choices. There is also a menu section titled “Irish Fayre,” which offers selections like Corned Beef Boxty, Shepherd’s Pie, and Bangers & Mash.

Johnny McTighe’s Irish Pub has a combination of Irish and American fare and has a fun game room with arcades and table games.
Aside from the parade and 5k run, you can do many things on St. Patrick Day week that you can do any time in Panama City Beach.
Head to Coconut Creek Family Fun Park and play miniature golf in the jungle or try to solve the crazy giant maze or try one of the go-karts and other rides at Race City.
The weather is usually in the low to mid-70s in March, so if we have a warm day, you can still hit the beach, take a catamaran tour, or check with one of the other watersports companies to see if they are offering services that day. If so, JetSurf Academy is a must for some high-adrenaline fun.
If the weather is cooler, check out some of the parks and conservatories. At St. Andrews State Park, you can learn new things about wildlife on both land and sea and pick up some information about Panama City Beach’s geography. ZooWorld Zoological and Botanical Conservatory is a very popular activity, where you can snuggle with an endangered Lemur, kiss a giraffe, and even feed an alligator.
One of the favorites is Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum, where you can tour galleries and a 3D moving theater, run a laser race and mirror maze, and see the strangest record-holdings in the world.
If you just need a low-key day of shopping on your Panama City Beach St. Patrick’s Day week, Pier Park is a favorite. This huge shopping center has over 250 stores, restaurants, and entertainment centers. One of the favorite visits is the restaurants, which are chosen for their quality and international flair. If the kids need to work off a little energy, there is an outdoor area with bumper boats, a train, bungee jump, and more.
