St. Patrick’s Day
The Spokane community comes together for all things green and Irish at the Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. Considered one of the most fun and entertaining parades in the region, you'll want to snag a spot on the route before the parade begins at 12 pm so you don't miss out. Whether you're of Irish heritage or not, this parade is open to total community involvement. So, come and embrace the Irish spirit for the day and join us in celebrating Irish culture as the town embraces all things Ireland.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Saturday Before St. Patrick’s Day
The centerpiece of Spokane’s Irish celebration is the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The procession begins the Saturday before March 17th at 12 p.m. in downtown and will snake its way around Riverfront Park. Everyone is Irish for the day, so come out to watch the flurry of marching bagpipes, green galore, traditional Irish garb, shamrocks, and lively dancing.
