Dyeing of the Chicago River

Critics' pick
The Chicago River gets dyed green before the downtown St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Saturday March 14 2015 Free

The Journeymen Plumber’s Local Union 130 has the honor of dyeing the Chicago River before the downtown St. Patrick's Day Parade. The dye is fish-friendly, and the river returns to its usual murky shade by nightfall. Arrive early to get a good view of the urban recreation of the Emerald Isle.

Venue name: Chicago River at Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive

Everyone should experience the green river at least once. It doesn't last long so make sure to be there a few minutes early from a prime viewing spot. It's also close enough to walk to Columbus Avenue St. Patrick's day parade at noon.
