11 Best March Activities in Chicago

March is always an action-packed month, as we all welcome the (hopefully) warmer weather with our green outfits, and/or the colors of our favorite college basketball team (or just the one we pick to win it all). With that in mind, let’s see what’s happening in Chicago this month!

  1. First and foremost, with March 17th occurring on a Saturday this year, there is no better time to check out the dying of the Chicago River and the Patrick’s Day Parade downtown.
  2. If you just can’t wait until the middle of the month, head down to Merrionette Park this Sunday, March 11, for the South Side Irish Parade.
  3. Starting next week, bust out those brackets, and catch all the NCAA hoops action at the best bars in the city for March Madness.
  4. Don’t wait any longer, because before you know it (through March 11, that is), Ice Skating in Millennium Park will end, so get there ASAP!
  5. On March 11, stuff your face with everyone’s favorite comfort food at Mac and Cheese Smackdown at Lincoln Hall.
  6. Catch a flick or three at the Midwest’s premier environmental film festival, the One Earth Film Festival, every day through March 11 at venues throughout the city.
  7. And don’t forget about Peace on Earth Film Festival, happening this weekend (March 9-11) at the Davis Theater in Lincoln Square.
  8. Through March 25, head up to the burbs for the Chicago Botanic Garden Orchid Show.
  9. Or, from March 14-18, stop by Navy Pier for the Chicago Flower & Garden Show.
  10. Taste some of the best whiskies from around the world at WhiskyFest Chicago, March 23 at the Hyatt Regency.
  11. On March 23-24, check out the Midwest’s premier showcase for local and sustainable food, with a lineup including Rick Bayless, at the Good Food EXPO at the UIC Forum.
