St. Patrick's Day Parade cancelled for Downtown March 14

UPDATE: Due to concern surrounding Covida-19 the parade has been cancelled. "This was a difficult decision, but all parties want to ensure we are doing our part to help prevent the spread of the disease. This decision was made out of abundant concern for the 30,000 people that come to downtown Milwaukee each year to celebrate with us," said Stacie Callies, executive director of Westown Association.

Milwaukee, mark your calendars!

The 54th annual Shamrock Club of Wisconsin St. Patrick's Parade takes place on Saturday, March 14. This year's parade is presented by Miller Lite and will step off at noon at Old World 3rd Street and Wisconsin Avenue and finish at Water Street and Highland Avenue.

Join us for one of the best St Patrick's Day spectacles in the country and the grandest parade in Wisconsin. The Parade features more than 120 units and includes local politicians and celebrities, floats, bagpipes and marching bands, as well as Irish and Celtic organizations. It's the perfect event for the whole family, because on St. Patrick's Day, everyone is Irish!

The Milwaukee St. Patrick's Day Parade is one of the oldest and longest running St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the nation, dating back to 1843. The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin has produced the parade since 1967 and has been in partnership with Westown Association since 2002.
