Looking to celebrate Irish culture? Look no further than these events hosted by the Irish Cultural Center and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Faire Committee.
34th Annual Parade and Faire
The 34th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will come rolling down the streets of downtown Phoenix this Saturday, March 11 and will culminate with the annual St. Patrick’s Day Faire. Both the parade and faire begin at 10 a.m. The parade will start at 3rd St. and Sheridan while the faire will be held at Margaret T. Hance Park.
During the parade, a variety of performers, entertainers and floats including marching bands, Irish dancers, and bag pipers will be there to entertain the masses.
At the faire, you can embrace Irish culture by enjoying three stages brimming with Irish music, stepdancing, bagpipers, along with food and beverages, Irish crafts & merchandise, genealogy, Irish Clubs, a Children’s Area, and maybe catch a glimpse of the “1916 Commemorative Exhibition” during a guided tour of the McClelland Library.
