L.A.’s Irish culture isn’t typically the first to come to mind when considering the city’s multicultural culinary makeup. Korean? Of course. Mexican? Most definitely. But Irish? Well, we do have our old standby pubs and a thriving beer and brewery scene that are the perfect complement to St. Patrick’s Day events in Los Angeles, including festivals, Celtic music performances and parades.

It’s no emerald seaside, but Hermosa Beach injects a bit of Irish spirit into the coastal city for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. Bagpipers, marching bands, cars decked out in green and festive pups from the Irish Setters Club of Southern California all make their way across the seven-block route. The parade kicks off near City Hall on Valley Drive, heads west on Pier Avenue and ends at the corner of Hermosa Avenue and 10th Street.

It’s no jig, but this St. Paddy’s Day tradition in Redondo Beach is a lively way to spend the Irish holiday. The 5K run/walk (8am) is followed by the Little Leprechaun Dash for the Gold (9:30am); both races start near the intersection of Catalina and Elena Avenues. All participants earn a festive T-shirt.
