Céad míle fáilte romhat - A hundred thousand welcomes!
For our 60th (yes 60th!) year, we are honored to have Dave and Erin Keem as the Grand Marshals!
For the 2017 Detroit St. Patrick's Parade, thousands of families and friends with high Irish Spirits were bundled up for the cold! It was our 59th annual Parade, a cold day with the sun shining.
The United Irish Societies (UIS) sponsors the parade and it was held on Sunday, March 12, 2017. It started at 12:30 on Michigan Avenue and 6th Street, continuing down to 14th Street.
In 1958, the United Irish Societies, sponsored the first St. Patrick's Parade in Dearborn, MI. The Parade route follows along Michigan Avenue through the area known as Corktown. Corktown received it's name as the Irish were the largest ethnic group of newcomers to Detroit, most of them from County Cork. The Corktown neighborhood is Detroit's oldest surviving neighborhood.
Everyone is welcomed to march in the parade. The 2018 - 60th Detroit St. Patrick's Parade is Sunday, March 11, 2018, starting at 12:30 pm. Be sure to mark your calendars!
Please check back later for updated photos.
A heartfelt thank you for everyone involved with the 2017 parade! There was countless hours, effort and dedication that went into making the 2017 parade the huge success it was.
