St. Patrick’s Day 2022: Corned beef, green beer & drink specials

More than 15 fun events to attend in Tucson

This year, St. Patrick’s Day is on a Thursday and is rearing up to be a Thirsty Thursday, but there’s more happening the weekend before and on the big holiday.

This means you’ll need to iron out the wrinkles on your green shirt and start looking for that pot of gold/fun event happening right here in Tucson. So, whether you’re looking for a bite of corned beef or simply a place you can spend time with those wearing — or not wearing — green, take a gander at some of what the city has to offer.
