The Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade tradition began on March 17, 1842 and has been held ever since. This Connecticut tradition became a premiere Irish event during the mid-1950’s and is Connecticut’s largest, single-day spectator event. The Parade had an estimated 325,000 spectators in 2012 and continues to intrigue viewers from across the state.

This year’s Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place on Sunday, March 16. Grand Marshal Kelly Canning Ruickholt will lead over 3,000 marchers, fife and drum bands, bagpipers, clowns, special guests and more! The parade will begin at 10 a.m.
