The annual, city-wide St. Patrick’s Day Parade kicks off this annual party, and since St. Paddy’s Day is on a Friday this year, you can bet it’ll be a party for the ages. The parade starts at 10:30 a.m. with coffee and snacks before the floats head down the streets. A number of businesses and restaurants help make this tradition a success, and the grandstands along Jordan Road are packed with revelers.
The parade starts at Jordan Historical Park and winds down Jordan Road all the way to Mesquite Avenue. The after party goes until 3 p.m. with free events. Get your green beer, Irish grub, and games for the kids at this family-friendly party where wearing green is strongly encouraged.
Get Lucky in the Southwest
The Sedona Main Street Program also hosts a number of green-centric events, tapping into local businesses, restaurants and pubs to make downtown Sedona an Irishman’s (and woman’s) paradise. Hop from shop to shop to get special deals, once-a-year treats and discounts throughout the entire weekend.
Mooney’s Irish Pub in downtown is always outdoing themselves to give partiers the best, most authentic St. Patrick’s Day with live music, entertainment and special menu items. From lucky corned beef and cabbage to the perfect Guinness, it’s where you’ll want to end your night.

In Sedona, there’s no shortage of bars, pubs, taverns and lounges to check out, no matter what scene you’re into. Start at The Sundowner, a local favorite where the menu is expansive, the drinks are strong, and you’ll get that special Sedona hospitality like no other. The Olde Sedona Bar and Grill is a great place for dinner and late night drinks, famous for their amazing views and delicious chili. For a real taste of the southwest, it’s an absolute must and pairs perfectly with all their beers on tap.
Mariposa Steak and Seafood Grill is another top choice for dinner and drinks. However, if you want more of a quaint, pub feel, head to Mooney’s Irish Pub where darts, late night bites and ice cold brews await. The Cowboy Club is a steakhouse where you can also enjoy a fine cocktail or craft brew of your choice.
Talk about a Nightcap!
At the Open Range Bar and Tavern, you can enjoy southwestern fare with an impressive drinks list. Saltrock is a favorite local bar, open late and where many locals wind down. Check out Vino di Sedona for craft beer, fine local wines, and pub food that will make you feel right at home.
Most in Sedona like to pair their drinking with a great steak, whether it’s at Relics Restaurant & Roadhouse or the Oak Creek Brewery & Grill where the brewpub is upstairs for fantastic views.

Looking for some luck of the Irish in Sedona? It’s not far from your Best Western, with some excellent pubs, entertainment, and fare just a few miles away. Start your night of shenanigans at Oak Crew Brewery and Grill where there’s an impressive number of beers on tap, starters so big they need to be shared, and special events from live music to game nights popping up year-round. However, Oak Crew is just the beginning!
Mooney’s Irish Pub is the closest you can get to dear Erin without crossing the pond. Authentic Irish fare alongside Guinness (of course) as well as a lineup of British pints is what you’ll find here. Show your roots (if you’re Irish!) and connect with locals with the same roots. Not Irish! Not a problem! Fans are welcome here, too.
PJ’s Village Pub is the quintessential public house that’s found everywhere in Ireland, but much rarer in the US. The Lone Pine Restaurant is the perfect location for enjoying a cold pint and trying out local cuisine. Nothing compares to these mom and pop pubs where the menu is only matched by the friendliness.
Ask your knowledgeable front desk staff for their own recommendations, and make this trip to Sedona one to remember.

Throw on your green and grab your pot of gold! It is time to catch the luck of the Irish. Sedona’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is sure to put you in the spirit and leave you feeling a little more Irish than before. This event dates back to 1970 so they have had plenty of practice.

The parade will last a while but the seats won’t so be sure to get there early to get a good spot as they expect up to 5,000 people to be there!!
After the parade is over, don’t jet off so fast. This is when the party really begins. Sedona’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival is filled with fun for all ages featuring live music and entertainment, food booths, free children and family activities and let’s not leave out the Beer Garden until 3:00pm.
If that is not enough Irish fun for you, stop by Mooney’s Irish Pub and grab a Guinness or a green beer. It’s not St. Patrick’s Day without an Irish brew!
