The community is invited to celebrate the parade and this year’s Grand Marshals, Sean Kirst and John Francis McCarthy. The event features dinner, refreshments, and entertainment from local Irish dancers and musicians.
The 38th Annual Syracuse St. Patrick’s Parade is Saturday, March 14, 2020 at Noon. The deadline to apply is Friday, February 28, 2020. Complete our online registration process today!
Syracuse’s 38th St. Patrick’s Parade will set off on March 14, 2020 with Grand Marshals John Francis McCarthy and Sean Kirst.
The theme of the 2020 St. Patrick’s Parade is “20/20: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.” The theme honors McCarthy and Kirst’s dual legacies as CNY storytellers in their respective mediums. It is also a nod to the proud history of Irish and Irish-American artists.
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 2020 Syracuse St. Patrick’s Parade is Saturday, March 14, at noon.
