Happy St. Paddy’s Day! The NYC Parade is today at 11:00 AM. The Parade marches up Fifth Avenue beginning at East 44th Street and ending at East 79th Street.
The New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade™ is the oldest and largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the world. The first parade was held on March 17, 1762 — fourteen years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
The parade is held annually on March 17th at precisely 11:00 AM in honor of St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland and of the Archdiocese of New York. Approximately 150,000 people march in the parade which draws about 2 million spectators.
From its earliest days, right up to the present, the New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade™ has been run entirely by volunteers, many of whom come from generations of families dedicated to the organization of the parade. It takes months of preparation and countless hours to run the world’s oldest and largest parade. We could not do it without the commitment of these great women and men.
Mayor Eric Adams/ Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell will start off the parade as does Kathy Hochul Governor State of New York.
