News flash: Everyone’s favorite drinking holiday takes place on a Friday this year, negating the need to limit your indulgences because of having to go back to work the next day! St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and although it has never been considered a traveling holiday, perhaps we can entice you to take a trip down south to explore the beaches of 30A and the comforts of our Dune Vacation Rentals holiday hideaways. Offering sunny days, warm temps, and some of the best places to enjoy green beer in the country, your St. Patrick’s Day escape to Northwestern Florida will give you a break from your real life that is both exciting and relaxing; this guide to St. Patrick’s Day activities and events on 30A will give you a sneak peek into a vacation filled with fun! 

St. Patrick’s Day Activities and Events on 30A

Before the nighttime fun begins, we do suggest you head to the white sand beaches we are known for to enjoy the most beautiful minutes of your life. Sunsets in Florida have been known to stop people in their tracks, lighting up the skies with a fiery display of color and drama and as you sip from your water bottle (hydration is important this thirsty night!) with your toes buried in the soft sugary sands, don’t be surprised if you find the need to applaud. Don’t fight the urge as you won’t be the only one clapping for Mother Nature’s most spectacular extravaganza! And once the sun has fallen into the sea and the dark skies are lightened with the twinkling of a billion stars, it will be time to start your night of excitement and Irish entertainment! 

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Show, Hibiscus Coffee & Guesthouse, 85 Defuniak Street, Grayton Beach

Families love 30A, and if you have brought yours along for this holiday escape, the St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Show is a family friendly event you will all love! Offering live music performed by local favorite Jody Lucas in their Backyard of Love, the backyard bar will be serving soft drinks, kombuchas, and of course, wines and beers and the dinner menu will provide all the flavors of Ireland that will make your stomach happy! Shepherds Pie, Bangers and Mash, and the classic Corned Beef Cabbage are just a few of your dining options, and as you enjoy a beautiful evening under the stars (the party lasts from 6:30 until 8:30) you may decide that St. Paddy’s Day on 30A will be your newest family tradition. 

30A Growler Garage, 368 W County Highway 30A, Suite 101 in Santa Rosa Beach

30A Growler Garage in Santa Rosa Beach is THE place to be on a Friday night and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception! Offering live music performed by another local favorite group, Shack N Up, the green beer will be flowing freely, and even the non-green beer found in their 40 different taps will ensure that this holiday will be one that you will probably forget! (But isn’t that the idea of a St. Patrick’s Day celebration?) Sit, sip, and savor live music from ringside seats by the beach and discover the vibe that makes this part of Florida one of the most popular vacation destinations in Florida!

St. Paddy’s Day Delight – Paint the Village Green, The Village of Baytowne Wharf

Offering music, entertainment, and a belief that everything Irish is everything wonderful, painting the village green at the Village of Baytowne Wharf promises to bring color and excitement to your 30A St. Patrick’s Day celebration! Starting at 6 PM and ending at 9 PM on March 17th, Carpenter Academy of Irish Dance and Live Music from Shenanigans are just a few examples of what you can expect from your Irish getaway in paradise.
