March 12March 12, 2016

45th St Plaza & Coastal Highway from 58th to 45th St.

Annual parade and festival celebrating the holiday, with entertainment following the traditional parade.

Come wearing your green! Each year, the local Irish-American community (and its many friends on the Eastern Shore) celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a colorful festival and parade.

The festival site at 45th St. Plaza is home to the parade’s reviewing stand and offers entertainment, food and beverages (mostly green) to the celebrating crowds. Parade participants — a hometown mix of marching bands, floats, service organizations, clubs, and law enforcement groups, entertain the cheering crowds lining the parade route. Local media televise the event for the entertainment of the home crowds. Prizes are awarded. Free for spectators.

To register to be in the parade or to find out more check out The Delmarva Irish American Club
