St. Patrick's Day Parade
"Meet the Irish" DINNER

St. Louis’ annual Irish celebration, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade “Meet the Irish” Dinner, takes place the night before the parade at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark in downtown St. Louis. It is a formal evening of dinner and entertainment. This year’s theme is “Bet on the Irish.”

The “Meet the Irish” Dinner begins with cocktails and entertainment. During dinner, we introduce our various dignitaries from Ireland and the United States. And, after dinner, there will be a Casino along with dessert and a DJ. It is a fitting kickoff to the events of the parade weekend.
