The St. Patrick’s Association will be hosting the 2021 Irish MASK-arade Live Broadcast on March 17, 2021, starting at noon via Facebook Live. Hosts will bring viewers up close and personal with all your favorites seen in the traditional St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Like and follow @stpatsmn on Facebook and Instagram to get notified when we go live.

We are shaking things up a bit this St. Patrick’s Day but that shouldn’t surprise you, we’re Irish after all. Learn about it all in our St. Patrick’s Association press release. 


The St. Patrick’s Association of St. Paul is so incredibly honored by the Irish Consul General, Kevin Byrne, and Vice Counsel Sarah Keating for their kind words and praise for our COVID-conscious St. Patrick’s Day Celebration of 2021. We share and echo their sentiments that even though our celebration is different this year, it will nonetheless represent what St. Patrick’s Day truly stands for—family, heritage, connections, and community. 

We are proud to serve the residents of Saint Paul and share our Irish-American culture. This year’s commemorative St. Patrick’s Day button pays tribute to that shared culture with the colors of both the Irish and American flags. 

We thank the Irish Consulate for their time preparing such a meaningful and thoughtful message. We look forward to the day we get to march down the streets of St. Paul in the nation’s greatest St. Patrick’s Day Parade again and see all of your smiling faces again. With fingers crossed, we pray Kevin and Sarah may one day be able to join us and see St. Paul in all her green Irish glory. Slainte!
