If you name your city "Dublin", then you better have a St. Patrick's Day parade, by gosh. And Dublin, Ohio does! Not to be confused with Dublin, Ireland, California's Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day parade dates back to the 1980’s.
The 38th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place on Saturday, March 11, 2023 starting at 9:30 am. See their
website for latest updates. They could have changed or cancelled it after we last updated this page.
This week-long celebration will feature both virtual community events as well as in-person, reservation-based events throughout the City of Dublin. It is traditionally held the weekend of St. Patrick's Day (or the weekend prior if St. Patrick's Day falls on a Monday-Thursday)

After the parade, there will be a festival, which begins at 10:00 a.m at the Dublin Civic Center, which is a short walk away.

chairs and/or blankets. (Parade viewing is not permitted on the center medians.) Also, please be considerate of businesses along the route and do
not position yourself so as to damage landscaping. The Parade Grandstand is located at 7400 Amador Valley Boulevard next to Oil Changers. Bleacher
