May the Cat Eat You, and May the Devil Eat the Cat 

What's the Craic this St. Paddy's Day?

It's that time of year again. The green beer will be a flowin' while your great uncle grows sudden Celtic roots in an effort to justify his "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" shirt. It's St. Patrick's Day this Friday, and although saintly Patrick wasn't actually Irish, we'd still like to raise one of the 13 million pints of Guinness that's consumed on this day to the man who brought a day of sanctioned debauchery. So don't act like a maggot while you partake in these various St Paddy's Day festivities this weekend. Slainte!

McMenamins St. Patrick's Day Celebration

This two-day celebration would make any Irishmen proud! The Celtic tunes of the Cascade Highland Piper band kick start the festivities on both Friday and Saturday. McMenamins truly shines in this extravaganza of live music, Irish food and drink specials and a limited edition Devil's Bit Whiskey. Since it's an all ages event, you can even treat your kiddo to music from Watkin's Glen, Five Pint Mary, The Quick and Easy Boys, Pitchfork Revolution, Coyote Willow and Cedar Teeth. Did we mention bagpipes? All day Friday 17 and Saturday 18. Free.

St. Patty's Day Fundraiser for the Children's Museum

A fundraiser for a large discovery center, drink and dance the night away at Silver Moon brewing to help this great cause. A raffle, live music and a special beer release is sure to entice the entire family in this family friendly event. Friday 17, 7pm onward. Free.

St. Patrick's Day 5K Dash

Run, walk, scoot—or if you drank a bit too much the day before, you can even crawl your way across the finish line in this family friendly and festive 5k fundraiser for KIDS center this Saturday. Dress up in your best leprechaun-inspired outfit to show off some Irish pride in an event that is both active, fun and for a great cause. Plus, it ends at Deschutes Brewery, so if you get a hankering for a celebratory pint, you're in luck! Saturday 18, 10:05am. $15-40.

St. Patty's Day ¡CHIRINGA! Concert, Dance Party & Elixir Bar

Explore the supernatural with this alcohol-free, family-friendly party. Sol Alchemy hosts an Irish-Celtic-Latin night with live music by ¡Chiringa!. Kids and adults alike are encouraged to dress up in leprechaun and fairy-inspired costumes for a conscious community gathering featuring "high vibrational" kombucha cocktails and ginger-turmeric shots. Friday 17, 7pm. $12-15.

Live Music all over town!

For the 21 and over crowd, there's a host of music in store on St. Patrick's Day. The Bad Cats put the rock into shamrock with their unique blues, soul and rock sound at Hardtails in Sisters. M&J's in downtown Bend has N.W. Compromise for a night full of festive cheer, while the Capitol blasts Saint Patrick into the digital age with DJ sets by Sheppard, Mark Brody and Simon Surreal. Friday 17, 9pm. $5.
