Many will have planned their St Paddy’s day activities weeks, if not months in advance. Whether it’s bar hopping, indulging in a huge burger or getting, well, zibel on Sunday, there are many options to consider. But if you still have absolutely no clue as to what you’re doing this weekend (like me), here’s all the fun you can get up to this St Paddy’s Day.

1. St Paddy’s Day in the city

Head over to the capital to celebrate St Paddy’s, featuring live performances by Gianni & Papps, Kersten Graham and powerhouse The Busker. The event is in collaboration with Jameson Irish Whiskey and Guinness, so it’s safe to say you’ll be drinking the best of the best!

This one’s a favourite among locals, and it’s back to bring you another crazy St Paddy’s Day. With an awesome line-up and Mizzi G starring the show, Quenchers and Big G’s are ready to give you an afternoon you’ll never forget! (Or maybe you will, depending on how sloshed you get).

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
