It’s time to wear your green with pride.

CelticFest Vancouver, the annual celebration of Celtic culture, is rolling into town March 9-March 17.  While lots of cities have a St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Vancouver offers nine straight days of Celtic food and drink, music and dancing and more.

All told, CelticFest embraces 70 events at venues all across the city, from tastings at Irish pubs, to traditional Ceilidhs with folk music and dancing to all-out street parties.

Here are five can’t-miss happenings for lovers of the Emerald Isle:

Celts on the CreekCelticFest kicks off with this free outdoor party at the Village on False Creek (formerly Olympic Village).  Stop by the plaza for a full day of heel-kickin’  Celtic music – both traditional and rock ‘n’ roll varieties – plus food and family fun.  March 9, noon-5 p.m.; Village Plaza; free.  Continue reading:

March in Vancouver is awfully egg-citing. There’s just so much to do. Not only do we get Easter, with the wildly popular A-mazing Egg Hunt at VanDusen Botanical Garden (March 30), backtrack and there’s also International Women’s Day (March 8), the massive and free St. Patrick’s Day Parade (March 17), plus the first day of spring, which is celebrated by our city’s Iranian Canadian population as the holiday Nowruz, with a series of multicultural events (culminating March 20).

Don’t worry, Vancouver eaters. After you get your fill of green beer, craft beer and Irish comfort food for St. Paddy’s Day, there’s another sweet foodie festival to consume: Macaron Day (March 20).

For Vancouver-based or visiting families, Spring Break (March 18-22) means there’s more great kids’ and family activities than ever this month. And Vancouver is already ranked as one of the world’s best destinations for family travel.

Find the full list of fun things to do in March after the jump.  Continue reading:

Vancouver is home to some 250,000 people of proud Irish descent.  So when St. Paddy’s Day rolls around, there’s more than just a parade.  There’s a full-blown festival:  an entire week of music, dance, parties and Celtic spirit.

The eighth annual CelticFest Vancouver kicks off on March 10 with a day-long party in the the waterfront Village on False Creek (formerly Olympic Village).  (Editor’s Note: CelticFest represents the 7 Celtic nations, not just Ireland).  Expect plenty of fiddling and dancing, Celtic food and free family fun.
