Welcome to ‘Shades of Green’, our St Patrick’s Day Celebration of Irish-America

Nowhere in the world celebrates St Patrick’s Day like America. This year, because of COVID, there may be no large parades down Fifth Avenue. But while we can’t gather in person, we can come together as a community. Alongside our Consuls General in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York & San Francisco, our Embassy has arranged a virtual program to celebrate Irish-America in all its many vibrant shades.

Titled ‘‘Shades of Green’’, and developed in partnership with a range of Irish cultural centers, it will feature artists from across America and Ireland, as well as more than a dozen exceptional Irish-Americans who will reflect on the community’s history, traditions and resilience. Alongside a special St Patrick’s Day message from Taoiseach Micheál Martin, the evening will include a poetic tribute to President Biden and a commemoration of those our community has lost over the past year.

We hope you can join us for the festivities here from 7.30PM EDT on St Patrick’s Day Wednesday 17 March.

Produced & Directed by Jeremy Handelman, Off The Leash Productions.
