Saint Paul’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade a tradition since 1967.

The St. Patrick’s Association has been sponsoring the St. Patrick’s Day parade in St. Paul since 1967.

We are a non-profit organization that supports the celebration of our Irish heritage, and we encourage families to participate in this long-standing tradition. In order to make the event a success, the Association draws together a wonderful group of people.

Our organization is 100% volunteer and we raise money to sponsor the parade and pass on the extra profits to local charities.

Saint Paul’s Miss Shamrock 2020

Each year the Association invites Irish women 21-and-over to become Miss Shamrock Princesses. The princesses spend six weeks together selling buttons and spreading the Irish cheer. From these princesses, the Association chooses the year’s, Miss Shamrock. The princesses and Miss Shamrock spend the remainder of the year visiting area parades and festivals as representatives of the association.

Our organization is 100% volunteer and we raise money to sponsor the parade and pass on the extra profits to local charities.
