Smoky Mountain Saint Patrick’s Day Events

Smoky Mountain Saint Patrick’s Day Events. You don’t need the luck of the Irish to find plenty of fun this Saint Patrick’s Day. These ancient mountains are steeped in Scotch-Irish history and tradition. Even the landscape brings to mind the emerald green hills of Ireland. Here are a few holiday hints that will point you toward your pot of gold on one of our favorite holidays.

The Fox and Parrot Tavern in Gatlinburg offers a variety of delicious holiday craft beers in a friendly atmosphere. This tavern has long been a favorite for locals and for good reason. Their bill of fare boasts such Irish staples as corned beef and cabbage along with other menu items that includes delicious steaks and chicken dishes. Discerning diners will find something to please their palate and can wash it all down with a cold, green beer.

The Facebook group Smoky Mountain Hikertrash is hosting a group hike to beautiful Ramsey Cascades. This amazing waterfall is found in the Greenbrier area of the Smokies and is one of the tallest waterfalls accessible by a maintained trail in the national park. The hike, an eight mile round trip, traverses some of the most beautiful old growth forest in the region. The hike is considered strenuous and participants should be prepared for any type weather. The hike, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 16, 2019, begins at the Ramsey Cascades trailhead and ends at approximately 4:30 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring lunch, snacks and water as well as basic hiking essentials.

The Green Man brewery in Asheville is going green in a big way! The Legendary Green Man has existed for centuries, but it’s no myth that his namesake tavern has brewed great beer in Asheville since 1997. The Green Man has consistently been recognized for internationally loved traditional English style beer and creative versions of the newest craft trends.  Downtown Asheville’s oldest brewery and tasting room, Green Man developed the first sour program in the area and has produced some of the beer scene’s most iconic ales for many years. Green Man brewers strive to bring innovative and exciting new flavors to all beer-loving folks.

Catawba Brewery is partnering with Asheville‘s favorite British Pub & Pie Shop for an exclusive dining experience at the Rickhouse Bar Friday, March 15, 2019. A delicious pie flight expertly paired with five Catawba specialty beers will be experienced beneath beautiful crystal chandeliers. Three savory pies will be served along with a sweet dessert pie.

Finally the Knox Saint Patrick’s Parade is a great time for the entire family. This annual event is Saturday, March 16, 2019. The parade route will tour Gay Street in downtown Knoxville. Remember to wear your green and shine your shamrock for this fun event. After the parade check out all the great things going on downtown at Market Square and the Old City!

Send us a message and let us know where you plan to spend Saint Patrick’s Day; and remember this old Irish toast, “May your glass be ever full, May the roof over your head be always strong, and may you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you’re dead!” We would add that finding yourself in Heaven ahead of the Devil with mud on your hiking boots, a full pint of ale, and a song in your heart would truly be a perfect holiday indeed.
