Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Tubi’s selection of Irish-themed movies, shows
You don’t need the luck of the Irish to take advantage of free movies and shows to keep yourself entertained on St. Patrick’s Day.
From folksy Irish tales to action-packed movies, Tubi has got you covered this year with hundreds of Irish-themed titles.
The practice of celebrating St. Patrick's Day here in America pre-dates the country itself with the very first St. Patrick's Day Parade taking place in Boston in 1737.
Parades are not the only event to signal St. Patrick’s Day across the globe. Well-known "greening" traditions in the U.S. include dyeing the Chicago River; lighting New York City’s Empire State Building green, white, and orange; and dyeing the fountain on the North Lawn of the White House green.
So here’s your own free pot of gold filled with movies, documentaries and shows to keep your St. Patty’s Day exciting from the comforts of your own home.
