MILWAUKEE - St. Patrick's Day in Milwaukee is not just a celebration of all things Irish, but a celebration, period!

There's hundreds of Irish musicians and dancers, thousands - perhaps millions - of pints of beer and corned beef and cabbage dishes enjoyed.

We have the ultimate St. Patrick's-related event guide to let you plan your celebration.

It includes the more than 50 Irish pubs to go to and which MCTS bus routes to use to get there safely without driving.
- Irish pubs in and near Downtown Milwaukee
- Irish pubs in other areas of Southeastern Wisconsin

Please celebrate safe! 

To help you get around without getting behind the wheel, we've built links to the MCTS routes that Miller Lite Free Rides will offer after 6:00 p.m. on St. Patrick's Day.
