Ready to rock some green? Throughout Palm Beach County, there are numerous opportunities to feast in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

The inaugural Jupiter Irish Fest will take place at the Abacoa Amphitheater in Jupiter Saturday, March 13, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to live bands, Irish dancing, and pipes and drums performances, attendees will be able to sample an array of Irish cuisine and beer. Highlights include an Irish whiskey tasting tent, Guinness ice cream floats, and traditional fare from McCarthy’s Irish Pub and The Bistro. There will also be a raffle for a trip to two to Ireland, with proceeds benefiting Southeast Florida Honor Flight. All visitors are required to wear masks at this outdoor event while not actively eating or drinking. Tickets cost $10, and children under 12 are free. Additional fees apply to some special activities.

Down in West Palm Beach, Batch New Southern Kitchen & Tap is offering a St. Patrick’s Day–themed weekend brunch on Saturday, March 13, and Sunday, March 14. Menu highlights include corned beef hash as well as bottomless mimosas, sangrias, and bellinis. On Wednesday, March 17, stop by for some celebratory sip specials such as $2 Proper No. 12 Irish Breakfast shots, $5 Pecan Whiskey shots, and $5 Paddy’s Irish Whiskey shots.

Other local events include live entertainment at O’Shea’s Pub in West Palm Beach, as well as a Teeling Irish Whiskey flight tasting at Lionfish in Delray Beach. Both are taking place March 17.
