The 2014 St. Patrick's Day Parade
Sunday, March 16, 2014
Since 1771, Philadelphia's St. Patrick's Day Parade has honored this religious and cultural celebration. Thousands of marchers and spectators in their green bedecked finery, the bands and floats, the flags and music highlight one of the grandest parades in a city that loves parades.
Join the Irish Chamber, along with our friends from the Brehon Law Society, Irish Network Philadelphia, the Irish Immigration Center, and the Catholic Philopatrian Literary Institute ("The Philo") for a family-friendly post-parade party at The Philo (Stotesbury Mansion), complete with a complimentary buffet, drink specials and live Irish music.
There is NO charge for IABCN members and their families. You will receive an official Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade badge and refreshments along the parade route. Thank you to our Ambassador Club Sponsors for helping to offset the costs of participating in the parade, supporting the St. Patrick's Day Observation Association, and the rental of the double-decker bus.

3:00PM Parade ends at Eakins Oval
