Saint Patrick’s Day on Fountain Square

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, one outlet has recognized Cincinnati’s celebration of Irish heritage as one of the best in the nation.

Financial website WalletHub recently released its list of the Best Cities for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations, and Cincinnati is No. 16 in the nation.

The study looked at the 200 largest cities in America and ranked them across four metrics — St. Patrick’s Day traditions, cost, St. Patrick’s Day weather and safety and accessibility — then averaged the weighted results. Cincinnati placed especially well (No. 9) in the “cost” category, which considers things like the price of a beer and the amount of affordable Irish pubs and restaurants. And, not surprisingly, ranked pretty poorly for St. Patrick’s Day weather, coming in at No. 146.

Five other Ohio cities were in the top 100, including Cleveland, which ranked No. 13, as well as Columbus (No. 20), Dayton (No. 26), Toledo (No. 93) and Akron (No. 97). WalletHub tied Dayton for first place with Boston and Scottsdale in the metric of “Most St. Patrick’s Day Parties and Festivals per Capita.” 

The best city to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is Philadelphia, with Boston coming in a No. 2 and Pittsburgh at No. 3.

For this study, WalletHub cited the U.S. Census Bureau, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and other databases.
