2018 Hunger Project Raffle

The Syracuse St. Patrick’s Parade will again be conducting our fall raffle which will help support our St. Patrick Hunger Project.


The Syracuse St Patrick’s Parade was founded by Nancy Duffy. It all began with a meeting at Coleman’s Pub and Nancy’s strong desire to bring her Irish heritage and culture to the streets of Syracuse, New York.

The 2019 Syracuse St. Patrick’s Parade is Saturday, March 16 at noon.


The St. Patrick’s Parade is one of the highlights of the year in Syracuse, and sponsors make it all possible! Parade Corporate Sponsorships through the $15,000 level help organizers underwrite the cost of staging, youth transportation, promotional materials, and awards. Sponsors enjoy prominent recognition and various benefits including prime parade viewing, depending on sponsorship level.


Many spectators in attendance.
