White Plains St. Patrick’s Day Parade

March 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


We all look forward to the 20th Annual St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, March 11th, 2017!  The White Plains Parade, like so many across the County and across the World, celebrates the contributions of the Irish people to humankind through their rich culture and music, their indomitable courage and spirit, and their legendary warmth and humor.

The White Plains Parade has grown exponentially, and last year had Five Divisions, with over 26 musical performances, five floats, and 90 groups participating.  This year we expect the Parade to be even larger and we welcome new participants, so join the Parade Route as part of a group or as a spectator. Our contact information is here.

Of course, the celebration continues in White Plains after the Parade with the Cultural Tour that provides an opportunity to visit many White Plains venues for as much corned beef and cabbage as you can eat, other food and drink, and lots of Irish Music and Dance.

So, mark your calendars now, and come join the best St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Westchester County, with a celebration like none other.


Parking passes are available for free. Jon will be at the Hamilton Avenue parking lot Space 218, starting at 11am. Meet him there for your free parking pass. Streets closures start around 11:30 so we recommend you arrive closer to 11am.
