2023 St. Patrick's Day Parades

St. Patrick's Day parades are held throughout the world, wherever Irish migrated! Massive parades are held in New York City, Chicago, and parades and celebrations are held in many other cities, places you may not expect, like Savannah, Georgia.

This year, concerns over CoronaVirus are causing most parades to be cancelled this year. We're trying to keep up with it, but be sure to check on the parade's own website (click the link we provided on the pages below) as some of these are likely to be last minute.

Here's one anyone (of drinking age and working) can do: Jameson Will Pay You $50 To Take Time Off Work and Have Fun on St. Patrick's Day
