SYRACUSE ST. PATRICK'S PARADE

IRISH PRIDE

LASTING HERITAGE

20/20: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

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.
