NYC’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Manhattan this Friday! Running from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade promises to be a good time. Don’t forget to wear green, and draw on a shamrock for luck!

St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl
This three-day event runs until Saturday, March 18th. Grab your green wristband from the Village Pourhouse for $10, and let it be your guide to cashing in on drink specials at several bars around the city.

Sober St. Patrick’s Day
Want to celebrate the shamrock-friendly holiday while leaving the alcohol behind? Check out this celebration of Irish culture that features step dancers, traditional music, food and refreshments! All this and more at the St. Patrick’s Youth Center Gym on Friday the 17th.

Old Cathedral Outdoor Market
This lovely boutique-like shopping atmosphere rests just north of Little Italy and will make for a great Friday filled with fabulous finds. If you get hungry, the organizers recommend Mottsu, a Japanese restaurant just around the corner that boasts great sushi reviews.

Spring Sidewalk Sale
Give spring an early start at the Spring Sidewalk Sale on Myrtle Avenue in Queens from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.!

Are you an expert bird-watcher, or maybe a beginner who just wants to try it out? All are welcome at Birding Bootcamp this Saturday starting at 9:30 a.m.! Come to the Wave Hill House and let expert naturalist Gabriel Willow be your guide to all of the birds that call NYC home (pigeons not included).

Murray Hill Farmers Market
Do some locally-sourced grocery shopping on Sunday at the Murray Hill Farmers Market in Manhattan. The market remains open until 5 p.m.
