With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, everyone turns Irish!
And besides planning your pub crawl to celebrate, you can once again head over to the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade returning to NYC after 2020’s cancellation and 2021’s virtual parade.
The parade actually dates back fourteen years earlier than the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and has carried on as a NYC tradition ever since March 17, 1762. According to the NYC St. Patrick’s Parade website, it’s “the oldest and largest parade in the world.”
This year’s parade will be held on Thursday, March 17th beginning at 11 a.m.
The parade route will follow Fifth Avenue starting at 44th Street and ending at 79th Street, always making sure to pass by St. Patrick’s Cathedral. You can expect all the same raucous as year’s prior with ornate, traditional Irish garb, Irish dancers and of course, plenty of bagpipes!

When: Thursday, March 17th at 11 a.m.
