The Greatest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the Nation

Our traditional parade is back for 2022!

THURSDAY, MARCH 17TH, 2022 starting at NOON

This year’s parade will be a reversal of our traditional route in years past. The fun begins at Rice Park (5th St & Market St) and will travel along 5th Street, ending near Mears Park (5th St & Sibley St).

We reversed the route this year so we can all head straight on to CHS Field to celebrate the return of St. Paul’s beloved St. Patrick’s Day Parade with a big party! The Ballpark Hooley presented by Guinness will start immediately after the parade (12:30 pm) and will feature live music by The Northerly Gales and Tim Sigler, Irish dancers, and some great food and drinks. 


The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a celebration of St. Paul’s Irish heritage and the many Irish clans that still reside in the area today. The Irish pride and spirit runs deep in this town, and it shows each year – lining the streets of downtown St. Paul with Irish and non-Irish alike. 

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is traditionally held on March 17th, unless it falls on a Holy Day or a Sunday, and our association has been sponsoring the parade since 1967. We love celebrating this long-standing tradition with everyone in the Twin Cities and hope to continue doing so for generations to come! Learn more about our Association’s history.
