For many, St. Augustine might not be the first city that pops into your head when you think of St. Patrick's Day. Maybe Boston or Chicago are the first cities that pop into your mind, but St. Augustine has been celebrating the holiday for even longer than both of those cities. In fact, St. Augustine is home to the United States' first recorded St. Patrick's Day Parade. 

Each year, the St. Augustine St. Patrick's Day Parade and Celtic Music and Heritage Festival takes place in historic downtown St. Augustine. However, due to the pandemic, the festival is canceled in 2021. While it won't be the same this year without the event, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate Celtic heritage, art, traditions, and culture in St. Augustine. Here are a few things to do if you want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in St. Augustine 2021.
