There’s always a lot going on in Toronto and the Irish and the Irish-for-a-day are really excited about the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day festivities.   

Emo Night Toronto – St. Patrick’s Day Edition

Emo Night Toronto – St. Patrick’s Day Edition will be happening at Sneaky Dee’s on Friday, March 15, 2024.  Doors will open at 10:30 pm and the party will go on until 2 am.

Emo Night North (ENN) is a weekly emo night in Toronto.  Emo is music characterized by emotional, often confessional, lyrics from the mid 1980s.  And on Friday, March 15th, everyone at Sneaky Dee’s will be Emo and Irish!

Jordan Black of Like Pacific will be the guest DJ and will be spinning classic emo bangers and more all night long!  Drinks will go for $6 before 11:30 pm, so come and bring your friends.  You must be 19+ with a valid ID. 


If you purchase your ticket here, it will cost $7.43 before the 15th.  If you buy your ticket on the 15th, the price will go up to $13.10.  And I’ve seen tickets at online ticket brokers that are going now for as much as $20 for each ticket.  So $7.43 is a much better deal.  And the savings will be automatic. 

Toronto St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The Toronto St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be happening on Sunday, March 17, 2024, at 12 pm.  It is the largest Irish themed event held in Toronto.  

The parade will begin at the corner of Queens Park and Bloor Street West and will end at Nathan Phillips Square.  It will last 1 ½ hours at any given point.  It is a colorful celebration of Irish culture, community spirit and heritage.  It is organized by the St. Patrick’s Parade Society.

The parade is filled with music, dance and fun!  It has thousands of participants and hundreds of entries.  Toronto’s ethnic diversity is reflected in the parade’s entrants.  You’ll see colorful floats, Irish dancers, marching bands, hundreds of leprechauns, pipe bands and green, green and more green!

Thousands of people line the streets.  They can catch chocolate coins and green beads thrown from the floats.  And a great time is had by all!

If you’re going to the party or the parade and want to look the part, there’s a great selection of clothes hereAnd accessories can be found here.
