St. Patrick's Day
PARADE

The 51th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place on Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 12:00 PM in downtown St. Louis. The parade always takes place “rain or shine.” It began at 20th and Market streets, and proceed east to its conclusion at Broadway and Clark streets. Visit the Parade Route page for additional route details.

Regularly noted as one of the top in the country, the parade was comprised of over 120 units, including marching bands, floats, huge cartoon-character balloons, 5000+ marchers, and lots of clowns. Over 250,000 spectators regularly attend, the largest of any event in downtown St. Louis, packing the streets with smiling Irish eyes and festive green attire.

We welcomed our dignitaries, from Ireland and the St. Louis area. Our guests were joined by the Mayor of St. Louis, the St. Louis County Executive, other local and regional officials, and the parade’s general chairman in leading our parade.
