Modified: December 19, 2022 | Story by Samantha Scott | Photos by Corktown Business Association

St. Patrick’s Day is here and for metro Detroiters, it means winter is gone and spring is here. Like the previous holidays during the pandemic, celebrations are still happening, just in a different way. Though we won’t be able to participate in our beloved annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Corktown, have no fear, there’s still green beer near.

See how Detroit and a few of the metro areas are keeping the spirit of the day alive.
