Chicago does it BIG for St. Patrick’s Day with lots of fun events, parades and other Irish happenings occurring during the days leading up to March 17th. We invite you to participate in all that Chicago has planned for St. Patrick’s Day 2014.
The Mulliganeers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fundraising for children in need and their families. The 19th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser will take place at the International Brotherhood of Operating Engineers Hall (Countryside, Ill.) and the cost is $75 per person, which includes food, beer, wine and entertainment by Maggie Speaks.

ShamROCK Chicago will hold a press conference at our sponsor location Block 37 to explain the initiative and unveil a custom-created ShamROCK Chicago chalk mural by local artist Shaun Hays. More details to come.
Lightscape is located in 18 planters—each comprised of dozens of LED lights—between Lake and Van Buren streets. From 10am to 8pm each day, the installation’s embedded speakers broadcast Irish musical selections and special announcements, as green lights change patterns in synchronization with songs.
"Heartbeat of Home," created by the producers and directors of Riverdance, is a music and dance spectacular featuring the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin and Afro‐Cuban music and dance.

A modern day miracle occurs each year as part of the St. Patrick's Day Parade celebration. The best place to see the dyeing is the intersection
of Michigan Ave, Wacker Drive and the river.
This year's Parade steps off at noon sharp. Parade route begins on the corner of Columbus Drive and Balbo then continues north to Monroe.
Parade route from 103rd proceeds down Western Avenue to 115th Street.
ShamROCK Chicago 2014 is an initiative to light Chicago GREEN for St. Patrick’s Day. Tourism Ireland and the ShamROCK Chicago Council are recruiting iconic Chicago buildings, landmarks and other venues to participate in the historical Global GREENing Project that has illuminated monuments like the Egyptian Pyramids, Leaning Tower of Pisa and Sydney Opera House. The movement is working to make Chicago the GREENest city in the world this St. Patrick’s Day.
The ShamROCK Chicago 2014 Council is a collaboration of civic and business leaders representing Chicago’s many Irish organizations and businesses. They invite the people of Chicago and the world to enjoy all things GREEN as we ShamROCK Chicago the week of St. Patrick’s Day 2014.
