The Parade

‌Welcome to the Cork St. Patrick's Festival 2020

Central to the Cork St. Patrick's Festival is the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

The most vibrant and colourful display to be seen on the streets of our city, Cork's parade features up to 3,000 members of communities from all walks of life across the city - sporting groups to dance schools, new communities to our long-established brass bands, and annual special guests from around the world.      

The 2020 Parade will take place on Tuesday 17th March at 1pm on the route below. 

If you can’t join us in Cork City on St. Patrick’s Day, watch our live-stream here from 12:45
