St. Patrick’s Day Parade 11AM-4PM

St. Patrick’s Day Parade 11AM-4PM Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 86th Street.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of New York City’s greatest traditions. On this day, everyone is Irish! The annual procession marches up past Fifth Avenue past St. Patrick’s Cathedral at 50th Street all the way up past the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 83rd Street.

The first parade in NYC took place in 1766 when Irishmen from the evolutionary War brought the tradition to our New World. The military units continued to march each year until after the War of 1812 when local Irish fraternal and beneficial societies began sponsoring it.


3. True Celtic Celebration at Irish Fair & Music Fest March 6-7

Picture 5They say when one door closes another one opens. Well that’s the case for the St. Patrick’s Day. The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade was cancelled in LA, meaning you’ll just have to celebrate it for not one, but two days at the LA Country Irish Fair and Music Festival. Enjoy a truly Celtic weekend filled with local Irish dance groups, clan gatherings, sheep herding demonstrations, highland-style athletic games, food, products and lots of music on multiple stages. Of course, there will be the fair share of beer as well! There’s not better way to truly experience some old time Irish celebration than at the LA County Irish Fair.
