St. Patrick’s Day Parade | Wilmington

Wilmington Delaware St Patricks Day Parade

Break out your GREEN and bring your Irish spirit to the 39th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Downtown Wilmington.  The parade will begin at 4th and King Street and finish at 15th and King Street.  The ICCD’s 39th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held on Saturday, March 15, at 12noon in downtown Wilmington. The Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade Hooley will follow the parade. The Hooley will take place at 14th & King Street. A large tent will be at that location to sell commemorative mugs, and to have the annual Hooley. All-you-can-drink beer mugs will be $15 each, and will be honored until the kegs are kicked!

Delaware Humane Association will again be bringing shelter dogs to walk in the parade this year. DHA volunteers, adopters, supporters and friends are encouraged to show your Irish spirit and love of animals by walking along with us, with or without your dogs! To find us, just look for the DHA van at the staging area.

Since 1994, this event has raised over $1,000,000, which directly funds almost 30% of the operating budget of the St. Patrick’s Center.
